The Mullumbimby Tennis Club held its annual finals day last Saturday where close to 50 players vied for club honours.

Despite the smoky conditions play went on and didn’t detract from some quality tennis, club coach Stephen Gort said.

In the men’s singles Stephen’s former student and current coach at the club, Teva Leibo, took on current student Amadeus O’Connor and won 6-3 6-1.

Neve Schweizer beat Elzie Bambach 6-4 7-6 in the women’s singles:

The results show that there are some strong young players coming through the club.
