Charity challenge big winner on and off the tennis court

ONE BUNG Lung took the honours in the women's division of the Len Bauer Massage and Rejuvenation Charity Tennis Challenge at the weekend.

Each team that entered the inaugural event, organised to raise funds for Transplant Australia Queensland, had to include a body part in its name.

The Foot Faulters won the A division and the Heartless Bs won the men's division.

Organiser Warren Acutt said the challenge, co-hosted by Yeppoon and Cressy tennis clubs, attracted 80 players and raised $2000.

Transplant Australia is a charity close to the Cressy club. Two of its members - Steve Griffin (kidney) and Matt Scott (heart) - have both had life-saving transplants.

Mr Acutt said the day was organised with three objectives- to create a fun day of tennis, to raise awareness of organ donation and to raise money for Transplant Australia.

"We ticked the boxes we wanted to tick," he said.

"The intention is to make it an annual event and hopefully, we can make it bigger next year."
