Five of the six finalists to play for the division one title were from the Mullumbimy Tennis Club.

Mullumbimby Tennis Club player Onyx Cheung competed in the Rafa Nadal tournament on the Gold Coast last week and won the Values Trophy for the U/12 boys.

The tournament is one of four hosted around Australia with age-group winners and the Values Trophy (best attitude and sportsmanship) winners all going to Melbourne during the Australian Open to play a tournament.

The winner of this tournament gets to go to Rafa Nadal’s academy in Mallorca, Spain, for two weeks. 

‘I’m very proud as a coach. Onyx is showing great potential and the right attitude on the practice court and in tournaments,’ Mullumbimby Tennis Club coach Steve Gort said.

The club has also recently won, for the first time, division one of the local fixtures competition.

Five of the six players to vie for the final were from the Mullumbimby Club.

Amadeus O’Connor, Marielou Baudoin, and Josh Stante beat Finley Parker (Ballina), Payton Schweizer, and Neve Schweizer four sets to two in the final.

The competition is played each school term between local clubs including Mullum, Bangalow, Clunes, Ballina, and Alstonville.
