Michael joined Club Fit Briarcliff in March of 2013 as a Tennis Professional. He quickly built up a large following of all ages and levels. Michael has coached nationally and sectionally ranked juniors, collegiate players and both men and women professional circuit players. He is known for his ability to motivate players and bring out their unique individual talents.
Michael’s skills at maximizing a player’s potential, his work ethic, and his attitude have led his players to succeed at levels they never thought possible. He is recognized as a top developer of junior talent. Many of his students have gone on to attend and play on tennis teams at colleges around the country. Michael has been a huge proponent of increasing junior, adult and senior tennis. He shows his dedication to all players, from the beginner to the top ranked competitors.
Michael had a major influence in growing the tennis program at Club Fit in Briarcliff and now we’ve been able to steal him away to be our Program Director here at Club Fit Jefferson Valley.
“I want to let you know how thrilled I am with the coaching I am receiving from Michael Bratt. Having never played tennis before, I decided to try it and quickly realized that I needed help. My wife played as a teen and we agreed to take an initial lesson at Club Fit. Our lesson was scheduled with Michael and from our initial greeting, both my wife and I felt connected to Michael. After our first lesson, we agreed that we would sign-on for more lessons with Michael. We have now been taking lessons once a week for the past month. Michael is very friendly and makes every lesson fun. While it is great to have fun, Michael’s drills and coaching have consistently improved our tennis skill. I am also attending a weekly tennis clinic that Michael facilitates and the drills have further improved my game.” – Glenn Harris
