Scientists and physicians around the world view tennis as the most healthful activity in which you can participate. From tiny tots to seniors, tennis is an enjoyable way  to promote many aspects of healthy living as well as being played in a social, interactive environment, no matter what level of the game.

From aerobic benefits to strengthening of bones in all ages, and improving balance, agility and co-ordination and a host of other positives in between, it’s obvious that everyone should be grabbing their racquet and heading to the courts!

We have so many awesome tennis clubs on the north coast that you will always be able to find a great place to play.

The Mullumbimby Tennis Club are having a free tennis day this Sunday at the courts in Byron Street, Mullumbimby. All are welcome – the more the merrier. The day begins at 10am.

Tell us about your great tennis club – email [email protected] with all your tennis news.
