Hi, my name is John. Born and raised in North Carolina, moved to Florida in 1985 after graduating college. My first job was at Innisbrook Resort in Tarpon Springs, Fl. There I ran the Health Club and began my quest to do what I have always loved to do, Coach! It was there that I decided that teaching tennis is something I wanted to pursue. After 2 years there learning from some of the best tennis professionals in the industry at their Australian Tennis Institute, I decided to become a Certified USPTA Tennis Professional. I moved to Naples, Fl. in August of 1987 to become the Athletic Director and Head Tennis Professional at a private club called the Collier Athletic Club. I was in that position at the club until it closed in November of 2010. I now have my own 2 private teaching courts to teach my lessons. My company is called Fitness By Sanders, Inc. I teach Private and Group Lessons, Clinics, Cardio Tennis, Core and Speed Training Classes. All instruction is by appointment only.
I specialize in stroke mechanics, footwork, and doubles and singles strategy. My lessons are designed to get the most out of my students in the time that is allotted for their lesson/session.

We've had such a great experience with John. My husband loves him too and both of us have really improved. Great person/great coach!
First lesson today and my husband and I loved it! John was great and very helpful and knowledgeable. We're thrilled to go back for another lesson soon!!
Excellent experience. He is very knowledgeable and patient. Excellent instructor for my son who is new to the game.
