Sad News

It was brought to my attention yesterday that Michael Spoor passed away a few weeks ago after a battle with melanoma.

I didn't know him well, but in my brief meetings with him I found him extremely engaging and very likable. Mike captained competitive teams in 4.0 and really dominated the local senior league scene. He captained four teams to Nationals.

He lived quite a life. His obituary can be found here.


  1. GREAT GUY!!! He will be missed!

  2. That sucks. He was one of the good ones.

  3. I joined up with Mike Spoor's team for little state one year. He was a great captain. Always encouraging and looking out for all the members of his team. I've never drank so much pedialyte in my life! He will definitely be missed in the Houston Tennis community.
