#24 Mansour Bahrami – a feature film life

Mansour Bahrami has spent his career playing tennis and keeping crowds entertained despite not owning a tennis racquet until he was 13. His unique style was honed in the streets of Iran, where he learnt to play using household pots and pans. After being banned from playing during the Iranian Revolution, he fled to France, where he lived for some time on the streets as an illegal immigrant. Nicole got to hear his story, which is being made into a feature film, in between matches at the World Tennis Challenge in Adelaide, where he continues to entertain crowds at the ripe old age of 61.
