South Wagga Public have booked their place in the Todd Woodbridge Cup state finals after taking out the Riverina finals at Jim Elphick Tennis Centre on Wednesday.
After coming up trumps last year, South Wagga went back-to-back with a win over St Patrick’s Albury in the decider.
They finished third in the state finals last year, and will be looking to go better this time around.
They will take on the best year three and four students on November 19.
St Patrick’s also qualified for the event of Sydney Olympic Park.
Tennis NSW schools development co-ordinator John Ferguson was impressed with the talent on display.
He believes it is a good was to introduce children to the sport.
“They learn the basics in the modified game like this and when they get to years five and six they progress to full court, yellow ball tennis,” Ferguson said.
In itss fourth year, the competition continues to be popular.
There was around 200 students from 20 schools taking part after regional qualifying days earlier in the year.
St Mary’s Young finished third after coming through a tight tussle with Nangus Public School.
Nangus really punched above their weight, finishing above some much bigger schools.
