Coyle was an outstanding New York Athletic Club water polo player and an excellent handball player in singles, but was best known for his doubles play. In 1944, the quick-handed southpaw startled the handball world by upsetting another lefthander, who had been unbeatable for almost a decade, Joe Platak.
Coyle used a slow, control game to overcome the blasting power of Platak on the lively Town Club court in Chicago. In doubles, “Lefty” Coyle’s style was to play a left front court with his partners. His partners worked the ball around until they could get a shot for Coyle’s deadly left.
