    Michael Filipek is definitely one of the best coaches I've ever had! I've been going to his summer camp for 4 years and I'm now taking private lessons with him. He's very detail oriented and the drills we do speak very specifically to what I'm working on! I'm a ranked junior player, and many of my achievements can be attributed to his outstanding coaching.

  • Gretchen Englander

    Michael Filipek is a fantastic tennis instructor. He instructs me once a week, along with 3 other women in doubles. He ALWAYS comes prepared (and on time) with drills, new strategies, and makes sure I work hard. His constructive criticism is well received and has made me a much better player. I highly recommend anyone to utilize Michaels expertise to better their tennis game.

    I have worked with Michael for almost 8 years. We are a group of 4 women that play once a week for 2 hours. Michael makes us do some drills, work on technique and really helps us focus to improve the level of our game. He is super fun, very patient and a great pro. He also coaches my 14 year old son and has been terrific with him. Couldn't recommend him more highly.
