A team of tennis players from St Finbarr’s Primary School have won their way to Sydney to play in the Todd Woodridge Cup state final, after winning their regional contest in Lismore last week.
The winning team is just one of three from St Finbarr’s that qualified for the regional finals.
Earlier this month the school’s stage-two students were lucky enough to have a training session with former Australian tennis player Sam Groth, and two coaches from Sydney’s National Academy. They helped the children with their tennis skills and techniques.
‘Sam also answered many questions about his time on the world circuit and his journey to become a top player,’ sports coordinator Lisa Clark said.
The winning team will compete at the state finals in Sydney on November 18.
