Scientists love tennis

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers.
