Junior tennis players from Mullumumbimby have dominated the local Northern Rivers tennis competition for Term Three, taking out divisions one and two.

Mullumbimby coach, Steve Gort, saw his teams perform strongly in the local junior district competition on the last Saturday of term three.

In division one, two Mullum teams battled it out in the grand final where Onyx, Ariel and Jamere narrowly defeated Marielou, Sascha and Elzie.

In division two Mullumbimby’s team of Harlem, Kylan and Keanu took the trophy from Ballina’s trio of Skye, Shaniquwa and Yali (not pictured).

The competition runs each term and includes junior players from Mullumbimby, Alstonville, Wollongbar, Ballina, Bangalow and Ocean Shores.

A fresh 9-week competition will start in term four of the school year.

Other future fixtures include some players going to an Academy Challenge against Terranora and Tweed Heads players, as well as a Junior Development Series in Inverell in late October.
