Bruns Tennis, a volunteer organisation that has been running the tennis court facility in South Beach Road Brunswick Heads have just signed a ten year licence to continue running the facility.

‘This is wonderful news for the club which is run entirely by committed volunteers,’ said club president, Kusha Sihvola.

The courts are well utilised by the public and over 50 club members who play regular evenings and mornings each week.

‘Those more mature players are always welcome. “The Lovely Ladies and Invited Gentlemen” would be delighted to have your company and share in a cup of tea and cake,’ said Kusha.

Social fundraising events are also organised by the committee several times a year, most recently the committee held an Open Day followed by a Paella Night that was a huge success.

If you or your family would like to learn how to play tennis or your tennis skills need brushing up, lessons, workshops and private coaching are available.

Courts, racquets and balls are also available for public hire and can be booked at Network Video, Brunswick Heads.
