Michael Topp

Tennis Director

Michael Topp moved here from Florida where he taught tennis at various clubs where he worked his way up to head-pro before having the opportunity to come to Utah and to Red Ledges. His love of travel - and of tennis - made the decision an easy one for Michael and his wife, Carrie, who is a nurse in the Heber area.
When Michael isn't on the court, he enjoys cooking healthy meals and exploring his new home state, Utah. A natural problem solver with an easy smile and welcoming demeanor both on and off the court makes Michael a welcome addition to the Red Ledges team.

Be sure to check out the schedule of clinics and programs throughout the year online or call Michael directly to find out how to get involved at (435) 657-4055.
