TENNIS players’ hard work paid off when they were selected for the Eastern Cape Elephant Tennis Team for the SA Schools competition.

The SA Primary School Interprovincials were held in Bloemfontein and the SA High School Interprovincials were held in Pretoria, both from April 27 to April 30.

The u/13, u/15 and u/19 Tennis SA Schools Week also took place in Bloemfontein for the primary schools (u/13) and Pretoria for high schools (u/15, u/19) during the same period.

The interprovincial tournament saw all the provincial tennis teams, including teams from Zimbabwe, take part.

The Eastern Cape teams showed great sportsmanship and etiquette during what was a very tough tournament. The following players have been selected for the South African Schools teams: Kaylin Bouwer (u/19) and Lente Taljaard (u/15), and reserves Anja de Beer (u/17) and Annika Kleinhans (u/13).
