Louise Waite is playing in the North Island Primary & Intermediate Schools Final 2011 taking place 1st and 2nd December.   

Louise won the 2011 AMI Tennis Central Primary Schools Regional Finals at the beginning of November in Palmerston North and the top 5 girls from this tournament were invited to the Nth Island tournament.   

It is limited to a draw of 16 girls from the Nth Island.  In this tournament, Louise is ranked 12th among these girls.  She is playing at 9am Thursday and the draw has her playing the number 1 seed in the first game.  Louise will have four games to play in total.  Two on Thursday and 2 on Friday.  It is very exciting for her as she will be playing against top ranked girls that she hasn't played against before.  Two of these girls are part of a 12U New Zealand tennis team who will be playing in Melbourne next week against the Aussies. 

As Louise will also be entering the 2012 Slazenger National Championships 12u in Wellington in January, this Nth Island tournament will also be a good preview of what level she has to be at.
