Mike Kelly

The Olympic Club
Inducted as a Player in 1997


by Geoff Capell

Mike is one of the three greatest players to grace the courts of The Olympic Club along with legendary Al Banuet and Bob Brady. Mike began his career at the famous Golden Gate Park Courts. His talents were recognized early on and he was recruited by The Olympic Club like many other Olympians. 

Mike excelled in both singles and doubles. His style is effortless and unforced, but not to those he is playing. His ball control is precise with two great hands. He has tremendous hooks on his serves and many times reverses the ball in play. He has won many local singles and doubles open Championships. Mike has also won several national doubles masters championships. He is best known for his superior over-all game.

Congratulations on your induction into the Northern California Handball Hall of Fame!
