Michael D. Levy, Sr.
Executive/Tennis Director
Michael Levy Sr. has spent over 35 years in the private sector with a variety of different companies. Mike is an eight year veteran of the United States Coast Guard. Most recently he served the role of Design Engineer for one the largest international power solution companies in the Midwest. During this time, he took the opportunity to volunteer on local community outreach initiatives provided by his employers, such as Junior Achievement of Wisconsin and YMCA Milwaukee Black Achievers.
Mike has been part of growing tennis in the Milwaukee area for over 40 years. After completing his United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) teaching certification in 1993, he began coaching at Milwaukee Rufus King High School and later at Shorewood High School. As a high school coach, he averaged 2-3 individual and/or doubles competitors in the Wisconsin State tournament annually. In 2005, he had the opportunity to win the Boys and Girls Individual State crown. During that same period of 10 years, he launched the Milwaukee Tennis Club which addressed pointing urban adults toward USTA summer league play and ultimately seeing five teams competing across southeastern Wisconsin.
Mike, and his wife Julie of 10 years, have made Mount Pleasant/Racine their home. During the years in this community, he co-founded the Racine Community Tennis Association (RCTA). The RCTA is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization which has offered 10 and Under Tennis to a very diverse community of young people and currently is a National Junior Tennis and Learning chapter operating during afterschool programs in Mt. Pleasant/Racine area schools. He brings with him a strong skill set in organizational leadership, along with his passion for tennis and youth. He is looking forward to building on the strong foundation of MTEF, to help strengthen our organization for our current and future participants.

9th Grader
Prairie School of Racine
5+ Year High Performance TEAM Participant

Cruise, whose older brother Toussaint was also part of MTEF’s High Performance TEAM program, started the season at No. 4 singles, then worked her way up to the No. 3 spot right before the conference meet.
