There were 72 schools from across the region involved in the day that now has the Young Public School team heading off to the state finals in Sydney.

The Todd Woodbridge Cup began for the Young Public School team when they beat out Young North Public School, St Mary’s Primary School and the Hilltops Small Schools before they moved on to the next stage of the competition in Wagga.

Young Tennis Centre’s Colin Maher said of the team, “it is a very well balanced team.”

Maher also applauded the team for their performance in Wagga. 

“This outstanding achievement in a 72 team competition in the southern area of New South Wales speaks volumes for the strength of this young tennis team,” Maher said. 

“Young Public School will now make their journey to Sydney to mix it on the big stage, I have no doubt the best team we'll put on a show because they have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

The Todd Woodbridge cup is a doubles tournament, played on a smaller court, each doubles match up is a team event.
