Mullumbimby Tennis Club Championship finals were held last weekend and culminated with the open men’s singles where Steve Gort beat Rob Dornan.

It was a game of very tight tennis between the Club’s coaches that saw Steve get the upper hand 6–4, 7–6.

Steve and Rob have played against each other many times since they were 12-years-old, with Steve having the most wins. This last was another close-fought battle.
