Brian Galle - USPTA Elite Professional
Owner and Director of Tennis
Brian is a USPTA Elite Professional. He began playing tennis in the Utica area and became the #1 high school player in the city. He went on to become a top 20 nationally ranked college player in singles and doubles. Some of Brian's best results have come in Syracuse including 2001 and 2003 USTA Eastern 5.0 Team Champions, Multiple Marsh Cup Titles and several USTA tournament championships. Brian passed his USPTA Certification in 1997 and has since held several positions in the tennis and fitness industry.
Brian has taken opportunities to work with all levels throughout his career from beginner to internationally ranked players. He has guided players to State H.S. titles, College National Championships and U.S.T.A. Sectional Titles. He has also worked with players facing physical challenges and those competing in wheelchair tennis. Clients appreciate the communication, passion, and details that Brian provides as he builds the foundations of their games. He loves all aspects of tennis but specializes in the modern game of dominating serves, strong forehands, consistent backhands, and reliable net play to set up points.
In his time with Wilson Racquet Sports, Brian was a top territory sales manager. The in-depth knowledge that Brian has in racquets, strings, and retail provides a very customized approach for his clients. Spending time with ATP/WTA touring professionals, world class stringers, and running large scale events gives him a broader perspective on what tennis players need to enjoy the game.
Train with those that have been there before!
Alex played varsity tennis for 6 years and was nicknamed "The Lion" by her teammates. She lead the Caz Lakers to Three Sectional Team Titles from 2015-2017 and teamed up with Nina Royer to win the 2019 Class Sectional doubles title in her senior year. She loves working with the future Caz players on all aspects of the game, especially the backhand, volleys, or attaining a 100 MPH serve.
Alex will be attending Geneseo in the Fall of 2020 to begin on her undergraduate work to become a Pediatrician. We hope that she has time to play some tennis for the Knights as well!
