Michael Komendic, VZN Tennis Co-Founder and Program Director: My passion for the sport of tennis has kept me hitting tennis balls since the age of 7. My coaching experience consists of 11 years of coaching at several tennis clubs across the GTA. I am a certified Club Pro with the Tennis Professionals Association. My personal mission is to make VZN Tennis the best tennis training program in Toronto by offering the highest quality experience for every VZN athlete.

Naveed Tagari, VZN Tennis Co-Founder and Managing Partner: My love for tennis has grown over the past 7 years working at a local tennis camp and public pool, which is where I met Mike. I would spend my lunch breaks with the coaches and kids trying to get better at tennis… However that ship has sailed, so don’t worry, I won’t be coaching! My current career is in Sports Marketing & Sponsorships. With my skillset and experience in the industry, I intend to bring VZN Tennis to life.

Following the example of a top-ranked player, Novak Djokovic, mindfulness is a very important piece of the VZN tennis experience. Breathing techniques, yoga, and meditation are used to calm nerves, engage in a positive reflection of play, and to prepare and execute strategies on the court.
