Telopea Park School became first ACT school to win the Todd Woodbridge Cup at Sydney Olympic Park on Monday.

Telopea Park won the ACT finals in September to face 19 regional-winning schools from across NSW and swept their pool before taking down St Patrick's Albury in the final.

The tennis tournament for primary school students uses modified courts and low compression balls.

“We didn’t go there to win, we went there to participate, be part of it, for the kids to try their best and enjoy the unique experience to play at Sydney Olympic Park and to have fun," Telopea Park teacher Cathy Marot said.

“It was really nice to see them playing with other schools, it was nice to see them mixing, and they saw some other kids they knew from playing tennis tournaments.”

Canberra coach Robbie Manzano had trained the team for five months leading into the event.
