Testimonials on The NDAC Tennis Program

"Mike and I met about 3 years ago when I first brought my girls to him for tennis lessons, which led to his continuing work with them, which led to me joining the club and a class of his (at the time), which led to developing a friendship along the way.  He shows more enthusiasm to both honing (& owning) his craft, developing his weaknesses to turn them into strengths, developing his staff, that only the best in the business possess; you will find few professionals with the type of work ethic and enthusiasm he comes at you with every day.  He will always be looking for ways to get his athletes & his staff better. This is certainly true with my girls. He knows what it means to be a leader in the industry.  If I meet people who are interested, and who play, I always suggest turning to Mike and the folks at North Dodge Athletic Club."

"NDAC is more than a tennis club.  It’s a place where I go to see my friends. Quoting from the “Cheers” theme song, it’s nice “…to go where everybody knows your name.”


"Mike is a professional in every respect. He is knowledgeable, reliable, hardworking and personable.  His teaching always focuses on your individual needs and his satisfaction comes from helping you reach your goals."

"Our 4.0 USTA team drills with Mike and his staff once a week.  The drills are fast-paced, fun, and target key aspects of the game.  Mike's tips and strategies significantly contributed to our team's successful year: we are going to Nationals!  Thanks, Mike!"
