Launceston duo Oliver Hadley and Oliver Carswell left Hobart as Tasmanian champions following the 16-and-under and 12-and-under UTR state performance titles.
With similar events being played all over Australia to replicate the December Showdown tournament that was cancelled this year, Hadley and Carswell were undefeated across both singles and doubles competition last weekend.
Hadley only dropped four games in his three pool matches before facing a scare in the semi-final - dropping the second set against Ben Fergusson.
The next day he was able to recover and make short work of Edison Lee 6-2, 6-2 to take out the title while the Riverside player and Fergusson united to comfortably take out the doubles.
Carswell's group stages proved even easier, dropping just a solitary game during his three contests and then proving faultless in his semi-final.

He accounted for North-West Coaster Ethan Clemons 6-3 7-6 as the combatants joined forces for victory in the doubles.
Another prominent Northern result saw Hayley Ryan partner Hobart's Iris Bouwmeester in the final of the 16-and-under girls doubles before a 6-0 6-0 loss to singles champion Alicia Dale and her teammate Brooke Miller.
Tournament director Matthew Scott was pleased to have an event of this nature run given the difficulties of 2020.
"It's been a big year and it's been amazing to be able to finish with our top tier junior event with a high calibre of players," he said.
"There has been some quality tennis across the two divisions so far, and we're looking forward to finishing strongly with the 14-and-under and 18-and-under age groups this coming weekend."
Due to border restrictions throughout the ongoing pandemic, Australian national ranking tournaments were suspended and cancelled with UTR events becoming the norm throughout the country.
While national ranking tournaments will resume from January 1, Scott praised the UTR system for becoming a fantastic alternative.
"Ever since UTR has launched in Tassie everyone has reacted positively by jumping on board, creating their profiles and competing.
"A lot of the clubs in the state have engaged with this platform to run their events, which provides opportunities for players to build their rankings and encourages level-based play.
"This is the inaugural event in Tasmania and we plan to run this annually in December, with the plan for a different region of the state to host each year.
"It provides a great opportunity for the community to support local tennis and to get around this event, which we see as being quite a prestigious one for years to come."
Launceston's Jake Elmer carries the region's hopes in the 18-and-under events this weekend.
