The SunSmart Schools Tennis Classic Academy Plate Country Final to be held in Perth at the end of the month has been postponed until further notice because of the COVID-19 crisis.

Brookton District High School students were preparing to travel to Perth after winning the Upper Great Southern zone play-offs at Narrogin Tennis Club.

The winning team from Brookton had hoped to travel to Perth to compete in the Academy Plate Country Final and would have been joined by the team from Narrogin Primary School for their chance to claim the prestigious title, which was won by Dunsborough last year.

The final was due to take place at the State Tennis Centre and Belmont Tennis Club on Friday, March 27, but has since been postponed.

The five country zone play-off events, and Perth-based Country Academy Plate Final, forms part of the larger SunSmart Schools Tennis Classic tournament series.

Seventy two students, from six Upper Great Southern schools, including Narrogin Primary School, East Narrogin Primary School, Wickepin Primary School, St Matthew’s Primary School and Pingelly Primary School competed in the mixed doubles round robin competition.

Tennis West schools development co-ordinator and tournament director Jason Marrable said the country zone play-offs were well contested.

“What’s been noted across each of the country zone play-offs is a great standard of tennis alongside fine examples of sportsmanship and camaraderie displayed by all students and teams,” he said.
