With more than 20 years of coaching and teaching, Michael has coached successful secondary teams and brought his infectious love of the game to country-club beginners — and done everything in between.
He played his college tennis at Ripon College, where he was part of two championship teams. And as a high-school coach, he took the DeKalb (IL) men’s team to the sectionals. He’s also been a country-club head pro.
In the summer, Michael and Horacio Callirgos run the program at The Highlands, where the focus is on making tennis fun for beginners and advanced players—in the same clinic!—and helping everyone hit more winners. And what’s more fun that?
