THE second season for 2017 in the Sale and District Midweek Ladies Tennis Association came to a conclusion on Monday.

Sale Tennis Club hosted the finals with the courts playing well after the downpour over the weekend.

The closest contest of the day was in section one, which plays under a mixed clubs format.

Dawn, comprising of fill-in Vicki Smyth, Lynne van Doeselaar, Jenny Luke and Caz MacLachlan managing to narrowly defeat Jewel by only one game.

Jewel players Masami Goold (fill-in), Debbie Kaandorp, Kerrie Brown and Linda Rawnson fought back after losing the first three sets to make the final set of the day the decider.

Dawn secured the win four sets, 29 games, to two sets, 28 games, after winning that decider 7-5.

In section two, Sale Wattle was victorious over Maffra five sets, 36 games, to one set, 22 games.

The Sale Wattle team of Carolyn Dyer, Kylie Tavasci, Maxine Centra and Wendy Fuessel played solid tennis to defeat the Maffra team of Jenny Gieschen, Melissa Hunt, Carolyn Adams and Marie Hallas, although with one tiebreaker and two sets with a score of 7-5, the final result does not show how close the sets actually were.

Nambrok won section three, defeating Stratford Hotshots six sets, 37 games, to zero sets, 22 games.

Again the final score was not indicative of the close tennis played on the day, however Nambrok’s Jayne Jackson, Ev Bermingham, Lisa Mezenberg and Barb Missen kept their cool to defeat Molly Ross, Jo Clutterbuck, Ruth Read and Therese Wharf.

Competition will resume early February. New players and those who would like to return to competition are welcome to join any one of the local tennis clubs in the district.

Women of all ages and abilities are encouraged to play as all standards are catered for.

Matches are played on a Monday morning with players sharing a light lunch afterwards. For more information phone Lisa Harrison on 0407 468 303.
