11-and-under champions crowned at 2023 Australian Teams Championships
Queensland and New South Wales teams have won the 11-and-under titles at the 2023 Australian Teams Championships
Australia’s most promising 11-and-under players have been competing at the Australian Teams Championships on the Gold Coast this week.
The annual championships were played at KDV Tennis.
“National tournaments like these give Australian junior tennis players the best opportunity to compete at the highest level, alongside their peers and team-mates,” said tournament director Francis Soyer.
“It’s also a chance to bring players together, in what is usually a relatively individual sport, to experience shared support and camaraderie at the highest junior level.
“It was great to see all finals go down to the deciding doubles matches, showing how close the competition was between the teams this week.”
The tournament is one of four Australian Junior Championship events held annually, which take place on each of the Grand Slam surfaces – clay, grass and hard court.
The New South Wales team, consisting of William Wang, Sebastian Lavorato and Ben Spotswood claimed the Rod Laver Cup.
New South Wales snared the title with a 2-1 victory in the final against Victoria, who were represented by Novak Palombo, Easton Dowker and Zayn Kamran.
It was an impressive effort considering they lost 0-3 to the Victorian team earlier in the round-robin stage of the tournament.
