Mullumbimby Tennis club junior Marielou Baudoin competed in the Grafton Champion of champions and the Inverell Junior Development Tournament for 12 and under girls and has won them both without losing a set.

‘Marielou has had a very good year with results and has been consistent with her performance,’ coach Steve Gort said.

‘Marielou has matured and has trained at a much higher intensity this year and this is starting to tell in tournaments’

Mullumbimby team mate Onyx Cheung also had a good tournament, coming in third in the boys.

‘Onyx was hampered by a shoulder injury last year but has improved immensely these past nine months. He has now caught up to his rivals,’ Gort said.

‘He shares a real passion for the game and I really think if he continues to practise hard and keep playing he and Marielou both have a very bright future in the game.’

Fellow team members Amadeus O’Connor and Elzie Bambach will join Marielou and Onyx at two more Australian ranking tournaments in late September.
