USPTA-US Professional Tennis Association)
In 2000 I was honored by having a 2 page editorial on my unique teaching skills printed in Tennis Magazine, “Add Vantage” which honors top teaching pros throughout the U S & is published worldwide.
I have over 30 years of coaching credentials in tennis & pickleball, studying with the likes of tennis legends, Harry Hopman, (the Australian Davis Cup Coach), Rod Laver, John Newcomb, Pancho Gonzales, Nic Bolleterri, Vic Braden, Jeff Salzenstein, Marty Hennessy, & Wayne Bryan, (father of the world famous Bryan Brothers-most winning doubles team in history and head of the national junior tennis team).
Over the years I have consistently worked with Master Tennis Pro - Ken DeHart out of San Jose,CA while assisting other pros Manny Fernandez & David Crain at the famous Almaden Valley Athletic Club, San Jose, CA. Working with Ken & his team not only provided me the highly tuned skill set to become a top notch coach/instructor, but to assist him with his individual teams participating in the National Junior Tennis Championships. I also was given the opportunity to help assist in the instruction of the National Junior Tennis Team, along with members David Crain & Jeff Salzenstein.
While in Las Vegas, NV during my 28 years of residency, I assisted tennis pros Marty Hennessey & Dorian Geba at the famous Desert Inn Casino Tennis facility for nearly 20 years while teaching for the (NTA) Nevada Tennis Association & Andre Agassi's All Stars for NTA .
In 1999 I became part of the select few candidates to become a USPTA certified instructor for the USTA out of Houston, Texas.
I have played professionally throughout the US & Europe, from USTA sanctioned tournaments, to open, pro, & semi pro tournaments for over 25 years.
I was selected to play as a team member in both singles & doubles for the select group of Corporate Team Tennis, Las Vegas for head Pro Marty Hennessey at Turnsberry Aisle.
During my 25 years of flying for TWA I started up both the St Louis Tennis Team, & US National TWA Traveling Tennis Team, playing #1 in both singles & doubles. This elite group of players selected throughout the US, represented not only TWA Airlines Domestic & International, but were US Ambassadors for the sport of tennis promotion worldwide.
From 2014 through 2019 I started up Pickleball at over a dozen locations, from ground up to sanctioned leagues, from Civic Centers to Country Clubs & YMCA's. I have instructed over 500 students in this time span creating my own FUZION Pickleball Academy for private, group, & clinical instruction. (www.FuzionPickleball.com)
In 2017 I moved permanently to Valencia Lakes, Wimamuma, FL. Since then I became head Pickleball & Tennis Pro at Freedom Fairways Golf & Tennis in Sun City. I also instructed Pickleball at Valencia Lakes, Sun City, Kings Point, Southshore Falls, Bayfront Park on Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island Civic Center.
In July of 2018, I was selected out of the entire west coast of Florida to be in the 1st class of pros to be certified to teach for the Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR). This class was taught by 5 time National Pickleball Champion, Sarah Ansboury, & headed up by Dan Santorum, CEO for USPTR & PPR & the first group in the world to certify tennis coaches to become professionally certified Pickleball Coaches for the USAPA (United States Pickleball Association). A 4.0 to 5.0 rating is required to be a member of this select group.
My beginner 2.5 through advanced 5.0 pickleball students from Freedom Fairways have consistently won Gold, Silver & Bronze medals from sanctioned tournaments throughout the west coast of Florida. My students have won more combined medals than any other PB coach on the west coast of Florida from Orlando, to Tampa, to Naples, Florida, including recent wins at the National AAU competition & the 2019 U S Open Pickleball Championships in Naples, FL.My primary passion is to see students excel. It is my desire to give consistently positive reinforcement and encouragement in an enthusiastic teaching environment. My goal is to instruct at a high level & have other qualified instructors working with me under the FUZION Pickleball Academy. I wish to raise the bar in the Tampa area, produce high quality winning players on all levels, & to give everyone at any skill level the type of professional instruction that will allow my students to be 'the best that can be', regardless of age or physical attributes.
