Happy birthday Mickey Styles

Happy birthday Mickey Styles! Mickey was General Manager of Gauteng Central Tennis Association for 18 years and has continued to impart his tennis experience and knowledge to the young players that he comes into contact with. In 1969 Mickey won the South African junior singles title and achieved the status of junior Springbok. Together with Byron Bertram he represented South Africa at the Orange Bowl tournament reaching the quarter finals where he lost to Dick Stockton. On the same trip he travelled to Costa Rica to play the Coffee Bowl and although he was beaten in the semi-finals by Ross Case of Australia he was very pleased with a win over Guillermo Vilas in this tournament. Byron and Mickey won the doubles and the Nations Cup.
