Kojonup District High School served it up to other schools to reign supreme in the recent Great Southern’s Academy Plate, which was part of the Sunsmart Schools Tennis Classic.

Tambellup Tennis Club hosted schools from Kojonup, Broomehill, Tambellup and Gnowangerup last month as they competed for the chance to represent their zone at the regional finals in Perth.

The SunSmart Schools Tennis Classic is run by Tennis West and School Sport WA and has been held since 1935, with teams participating from across the State.

The Classic involves the Slazenger Cup (Years 7-12), Herbert Edwards Cup (Years 7-9) and Academy Plate (Years 3-6) and consists of a series of inter-school events in a bid to qualify for the finals.
