2019 Board Member, Mark Fischl (Vice President)

2017 Candidate FischlMark was introduced to platform tennis in 1993 on a court used from the prior year’s Nationals at the Huntington YMCA. He quickly fell in love with the game and started playing as much as possible. In 2002, he took over as Chair of the Men's Players Committee. In 2004, Mark became President of the APTA and served in that role for five years. Under Mark's tenure, the Clinics and Exhibitions tour was created as was the Growth Committee. Clearly his smartest decision was hiring current APTA Executive Director Ann Sheedy. In 2009, Mark was part of an effort to relocate the YMCA courts to Crest Hollow Country Club and the birth of Long Island's first public facility with five courts.

Mark attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and played both basketball and tennis there. When not playing paddle (he has been ranked in the top-20 multiple times), talking about paddle, or watching paddle, Mark is either playing golf with his paddle buddies or traveling the world with his family. He currently lives in Huntington, New York, with his wife Anne, his two sons, Andrew and Thomas, and six cats.
