Sonny is a certified PTR tennis professional from Chicago, IL where he began his 26 year career in the tennis industry. He started as an instructor in a grass-roots, community tennis association in hopes to teach character to at-risk youth through sports. He continued to gain extensive experience as a staff pro, head pro and director of tennis at park districts, country clubs, as well as large tennis corporations. He also spent time as a head high school coach and as an assistant coach at a Division I university. Though Sonny has taught a wide range of players, spanning in age from 3 to 83 years old at all levels, he particularly enjoys instructing both competitive club players and new players who are hungry to learn a sport for a lifetime.
Sonny is looking forward to being a part of the tennis community at MAC and seeks to create opportunities for players to improve their tactics, techniques and tennis specific strength. In order to accomplish this goal, Sonny will make himself available for private and group lessons. He will also offer cardio tennis classes, clinics for USTA teams and supervised play.
