He began working here in 2016, and has been actively involved with instructing the junior lessons, club maintenance, grounds keeping, and working tournaments here at the club. This year, along with all our employees, he will work hard at increasing the community engagement with the club for both memberships and junior programs, as well as making sure the courts look better than ever.
