Marielou with her trophy

Marielou Baudouin from the Mullumbimby Tennis Club made it into the U/12 girls final of the NSW Junior Closed Championships held in Sydney two weeks ago.

Marielou beat the number two seed 6–0 6–1 in the semifinal, but then lost the final to the number three seed 6–0 7–5.

Marielou also played her way into the U/12 doubles semifinals.

The championship was the culmination of the 2019 Junior Development Series.
