The Australian Made Red Energy Foundation Cup gives children aged 13 and under from regional and rural Australia the opportunity to participate in competitive tennis at the highest level. The tournament forms part of the Australian Made Summer of Tennis.

New South Wales claimed the 2019 title over the Northern Territory at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Centre, Melbourne in mid-January.

The winners, runners-up and best and fairest awards were presented on court by Ben Lazzaro, Chief Executive of the Australian Made Campaign, Ben Hon, Manager – Marketing Communications of Red Energy and tennis legend Judy Dalton, President of the Fed Cup Foundation.

The winners were Jeorge Collins (Mt Rankin), Vitorio Sardinha (Gunnedah), Ella Brown (Thurgoona) and Amelia Johnson (Banora Point) and the runners-up were Nicolas Tremblay (Millner), Angus Cameron (Katherine), Tegan Genockey (Virginia) and Tumi Kgosiemang (Wanguri).

Tegan received the Judy Dalton medal and Jeorge the John Fitzgerald medal for best and fairest. Both also received a $1000 cheque from the Australian Made Campaign, Red Energy and the Fed Cup Foundation, to assist with their tennis development.

“The Australian Made Summer of Tennis celebrates local talent – and Australia has a lot to be proud of,” Lazzaro said. “We produce some of the best quality products in the world, and our home-grown athletes are no exception.”
