Eleven teenagers from the Northern Rivers Tennis Academy travelled to Grafton to compete in the North Coast Open over the June long weekend.
‘Although no-one came home an outright winner, there were plenty of matches won and lost over the four days of competition, and everyone had a lot of fun,’ coach Steve Gort said.
Boy and girl duos made it through to the doubles semifinals and singles players got through to the quarterfinals as well.
The Mullumbimby-based squad is also joining forces with young players from Alstonville and Ballina to play in a State of Origin style tournament against the KDV Academy, based in Carrara on the Gold Coast.
The event scheduled for this weekend will see roughly 40 players from each side of the border hit the courts.
