Our Tennis Director
Michael Fischer Jr of F.I.T.T. is our Tennis Director and head teaching pro at NVTA.
Raised in Fairfield, California, Coach Mike was a 4-time All American and 2-Time League MVP for the Varsity tennis team at Vanden High School. After high school, Mike attended Santa Rosa Jr. Community College to play tennis where he played number 2 singles and number 1 doubles. In 2008, he won the California Community College Regional Doubles Championship and was named a Community College All American.
After college, Michael became a USPTA certified teaching professional and started developing junior athletes at a local high-performance junior academy. He also developed his own client base by teaching private lessons and group clinics to the residents of Solano county and surrounding areas. At one point, he held a top 40 regional ranking in the Men’s Open Singles Division and held a 5.5 NTRP ranking.
Collectively, Michael has 20 plus years of playing experience and nearly 15 years of professional coaching. He is also a certified USPTA Elite Professional. His background working at these various levels has provided him a great perspective on the game of tennis and he looks forward to sharing his knowledge with all new and existing tennis players at NVTA and the communities of Napa Valley. In the near 2 years he has been at NVTA, he has grown the level of participation drastically by adding a multi-level junior program, weekly adult clinics and has continued to help all adults better their individual and team skill levels as well as reach and work on their playing goals.
He started at NVTA in April of 2019 after holding the position of Tennis Director with Cliff Drysdale Tennis management company at In-Shape Fairfield Rancho Solano. His company is Fischer International Tennis Training aka “FITT” and currently has one other important team member you may come across. Annika, Mike’s wife, is the FITT Schedule Coordinator and will help you book all your lessons, sign up your juniors and answer any questions you may have about their programming. She also happens to be a NVTA board member! Annika can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
