McEwen Reserve’s women have been one of the side’s strengths, with Heather Thomson (pictured), Lyn Gibbs and Kathleen Davies forming an impressive trio.

A Friday night spectacular has McEwen Reserve Gold taking on Old Students to restart competition in the Shepparton District Tennis Association.

With a match tonight there will be no chance of the heat striking out this contest, as it did for the competition last week.

McEwen Reserve Gold is one of the only teams capable of testing top side Tallygaroopna, but can not relax against the Students.

Old Students were unlucky not to win against Central Park in their last match, with just two games the difference in an encounter where a host of sets were decided in tie-breakers.

They will need to find a way to claim these tight sets tonight, with Gold unlikely to make many unforced errors.

McEwen Reserve’s women have been one of the side’s strengths, with Heather Thomson, Lyn Gibbs and Kathleen Davies forming an impressive trio.

St Brendan’s should further cement its finals position against Kialla Park.

Kialla has not experienced much success this season, with its last win against McEwen Reserve Green coming in December.

St Brendan’s will be hoping to produce a comprehensive display and maintain some strong form leading into finals.

McEwen Reserve Green has a tough ask ahead tomorrow against Tallygaroopna.

The last time the sides met the Redlegs conceded just one set in a 8-51 to 1-18 thrashing.

With Tally the competition benchmark, the side should go through the season undefeated as Old Students and Central Park await following this week’s contest.

The final match of pennant/A1 has Shepparton North hosting Central Park.

North faces a difficult match as Central Park has upped it performances in the second half of the season as a finals appearance remains a possibility.
