Launceston step-brothers Sam Whitehead and Ruben McCormack have represented Tasmania many times in the past but the two have now gained national recognition due to their performances at the Pizzey Cup tournament held in Adelaide.
Launceston's tennis pedigree received another boost as the family duo were named in the All-Australian side following a strong cup effort.
Consolidating their impressive showings at the Tasmanian Easter Championships, the pair received the accolade by being one of the eight best-performing players at the annual titles as Tasmania finished sixth in South Australia.
Despite both being bundled out in tight first-round losses in the Australian Championships held in conjunction with the cup, Whitehead only lost one singles match in team competition with McCormack picking up three singles wins playing as the top male and four mixed doubles victories.
Tasmania's national academy head coach Simon Youl was pleased with the team's performance throughout the championships.
"As a team we competed really well," Youl said.
"We had a great win over the ACT, with a nail-biting finish. In our final match we pushed NSW, the eventual runners-up.
"It's an absolute credit to our players for the spirit they showed throughout the week.
Launceston's Oliver Hadley rounded out the the trio of Northern boys, picking up a comprehensive 6-1 6-0 singles win against ACT.
First held in 1963, the Pizzey Cup is named after former Queensland Premier Jack Pizzey and has had the likes of Pat Rafter, Sam Stosur and Casey Dellacqua compete throughout.
