The event, run by the Lady Taverners and Cricket Wales, saw Greenfield School from Merthyr Tydfil crowned champions for the second year running after a narrow two-run victory.
They will now head to Lord's to compete in the national finals, representing Wales.
Alongside champions Greenfield were Maes-y-Coed, Henfelin, Heol Goffa and Woodlands.
Glamorgan Cricket’s first team captain Michael Hogan presented the trophy to the winning side and appeared with the teams for their celebratory photographs.
Speaking after the tournament, he said: “It’s great to see so many kids with a smile on their face playing cricket. You could see how much they love the game and the fact that they can play here at Sophia Gardens is a fantastic opportunity. Hopefully Greenfield can bring some silverware back from Lord's!”
Table Cricket is a format of the game designed for those with severe physical or learning disabilities, particularly wheelchair users, and provides a multitude of health benefits, both physical and mental, to those involved.
