CCRC COURTSIDE CHAT VOLUME X: MICHAEL


Name: Michael

AKA: Mikey

Age: 17.8

How long have you worked at CCRC? I've worked at CCRC for just over a year, but because of the amazing relationships I've built feels like a lifetime!


Favorite Thing to Eat at CCRC: The quesadilla hands down. Any other answer is just wrong LOL!

Best Part of Working at CCRC: The best part of working at CCRC has to be getting to interact with and build connections with all of the amazing members! There are so many really awesome people that you can learn so much from who also happen to know how to have a good time.


Worst Part of Working at CCRC: Honestly there really isn't anything I can think of, but walking around in the heat on the hottest days of the summer.


Do you play tennis? For how long? Did you play at CCRC? I played tennis pretty seriously for about four years and now I play more recreationally.

Are you still in school? What are you studying? I am going into my senior year at UCity High School (U TIME!), but am a part of the Early College Program. I will be a full time student at STLCC Forest Park attaining my associates degree in the fall, and in the spring will be doing an EMT program so that I graduate with my diploma, associates degree and as a certified EMT. Just to brag on UCity a little bit, this is all free and open to all students who meet the requirements.

Most amount of racquets you've strung in a day? My record is nine racquets in one day! I left not being able to feel my fingers, especially because I did one of CMack's racquets!

What is it like to work for a family business? To work for a family business is to join a family. I truly have felt nothing but love and compassion (and a little dysfunction) since joining the team at CCRC. It amazes me how involved the owners are and how even myself--just a measly pool runner--has direct access and communication with them. I know that whatever I need they have got my back, as they have proved it time and time again. I honestly couldn't see myself working anywhere else at this point in my life.


Weirdest thing that has ever happened to you working here (or been asked to you on the phone): I had someone call the pro shop and ask if I could give them a member's address...and then when I said no they then asked to be transferred to Dan...and then when I told them I couldn't do that yelled at me over the phone...
