By Ross Kendall

Junior tennis players from Mullumbimby and Byron Bay have collected impressive results at the Tweed Heads Open and NSW State Championships this month.

Solomon Wolf was too good for all comers earning a win in the tier two U/17 Boys, so too Oscar Parker who won the tier one U/17s at the Tweed. Onyx Cheong rounded out the winning trio from the Mullumbimby Tennis Club when he took out the tier two open division.

Oliver Heanes from Byron Bay Public School was selected to represent the North Coast region at the 2022 PSSA State Tennis Championships held in Sydney last week.

It is the first time in ten years a kid from Byron Bay Public has been selected.
