Last chance to influence ladder
Six teams line up tomorrow evening for their final match of the Twilight Tennis competition before finals.
Legal Eagles lead the comp with 81 points, and will play third placed Deni Newsagency.
Legal Eagles captains Michael Pisasale and Sarah Metcalfe will need to watch their back if they aim to keep their first position.
The Eagles have only a one set lead on the second placed team Peppin Planners.
Newsagency — led by Abbey Hodgson and Michael Williams — would love to upset the leading team in the last round and knock them out of the leading position and they have the fire power with Abbey and Annie Bulmer winning plenty of sets in the comp to date.
Edwina Knox and Sarah Metcalfe, playing for Eagles, have similarly led their teams from the front.
Sarah has not lost a set in the competition to date.
If second placed Peppin Planners want to take over first place, they will need to win more sets than Herron Todd White.
Heidi Plant and Ric Bond lead a strong team with new blood player Riley Hamilton causing disruption in his short time playing, as he has shown off his abilities.
Riley will lend some real strength to the middle of his team.
In the last match, Agspares will face off against Mitre 10.
The result of the match will have no impact on which teams proceed to the final next week.
The Mitre 10 ladies have pulled their men along during the competition.
With leading men Jon Gatacre and Rod Armytage not able to play because of farming duties, the match will be wide open for a tight finish.
Players are reminded that the Fast 4 tournament will be held this Friday to mark the end of the season for the club.
