The duo represented Wimmera in the under-12 girls competition and won all of their round-robin matches winning their group.

They defeated Goulburn Region 2-1, Barwon 3-0 and South West 3-0. It was a great display by the duo with Boyd remaining unbeaten.

Archer Reading and Nicholas Gillespie represented the region in the under-12 boys. They won a match against the Central Highlands 2-1. They also won a set in the doubles against South West.

The girls under-14 featuring Adele Joseph and Emma Streeter finished third in their division. They lost their first match 0-3 against ERT, but bounced back in their second match defeating WRTA, 2-1. In their fourth match, they lost 1-2 to NSJTA but finished their tournament off well in their last match, defeating PTA, 3-0.

Harry Allan and Eli Bailey represented the boys under-14 and they finished runner-up in their group. In their first match, they lost to Barwon 3-0 and in their second lost to MPR, 1-2. It was, however, their third match they won to conclude the tournament. Against Central Highlands they won 2-1 with Harry Allan narrowly losing his singles match against Ethan Spiteri, 7-8.

Tahlia Thompson and Ella Thompson finished second in their group in the open girls. In their first match, they defeated Loddon Campaspe 3-0. In their second match against Barwon Girls, they lost 1-2 but they finished off the tournament strong winning their last match against South West 2-1.
