2020 Board Member, Demian Johnston

Board Member Demian Johnston

In the fall of 2007, Demian was introduced to platform tennis while attending an introductory exhibition hosted by Connie Jones at the Roxbury Swim and Tennis Club in Stamford, Connecticut. He was immediately hooked and plays every chance he gets. So grateful for the gift of paddle, Demian jumped at the chance to volunteer, organizing club round robins and serving in multiple roles within his club.

While Demian's achievements on the court are modest, he routinely participates in several local leagues and a number of local tournaments throughout the year. He's no stranger to his fellow players nor the back draws of these tournaments.

Since 2016, Demian has been serving on the board of the Fairfield County Platform Tennis League, one of the oldest and largest leagues in the country, boasting over 1600+ players, 118 teams, and 37 clubs. As a 20+-year software industry veteran, Demian has developed technology to create league schedules, tournament draw construction, and mobile-friendly scoring solutions. Most recently, Demian has been working with the APTA and Paddlescores.com to bring the PTI to Fairfield County, CT.

Demian was raised in South Burlington, VT, and received a BS in Mathematics/Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, where he met his wife, Lori. They live in Stamford, where they have raised two children, Maura and Kieran.
