Local aspiring tennis players were in the winnings when the region's top shots took to the courts in Tamworth on Sunday for the North West Champion of Champions seeding tournament.
Guyra's Isabella Purvis finished as top seed in the 10 and under girls while Armidale's Charo Brown and Sophie Baily both finished as second seed in their age groups.
The one-day event brought together the eight best-performed boys' and girls' players across the region in the 8&U, 10&U, 12&U, 14&U and 16&U and served as a seeding event for the Northern NSW Champions of Champions tournament in Inverell.
Coming up this weekend, the top eight players from the North West will be joined by the top eight players from the North Coast for two days of competition play. That will then lead into the North West Championships - for all ages - at Gunnedah a fortnight later (December 4 and 5).
Fresh from cleaning up at their club championships the previous weekend, Gunnedah duo Archie McCormack (boys) and Armarni Louis (girls) finished on top in the 12&U divisions.
Tamworth's Harry Judd will meanwhile go into Inverell as the top North West seed in the 8&U boys, Tamworth's Oscar Tonkin the 10&U boys, Gunnedah's Mason Louis the 14&U boys, Tamworth's Connor Guest the 16&U boys, Tamworth's Isabelle Scanlon the 8&U girls, Guyra's Isabella Purvis the 10&U girls, Moree's Lauren Appleby the 14&U girls and Tamworth's Kendra Fitzpatrick the 16&U girls.
