THE final round of the Surry District Tennis Association season before finals is set to produce some great competition.
“The most interesting match (in A Grade) is probably between Heywood Gold and Drumborg Lions, playing for the last spot in the finals,” SDTA president Jim McKenzie said.
“Drumborg will have to win 6-3 or better to get in, and I think that Shawn Dalton might be playing for the Lions this week, so that might heighten their chances to do that.
“I have a sneaky feeling that they might do it … you never know.”
The stakes will also be high for A Grade’s top two teams, Lawn and Tyrendarra, which will play-off for a home court advantage in their first final.
“I think that (playing at Tyrendarra) would be an issue for Lawn; I think they’d really hate to play at Tyrendarra, and so I’d say Tyrendarra would be very keen to get them out there,” McKenzie said.
