Teams may be mismatched on paper, but there is plenty of room for upsets in this week’s Shepparton District Tennis Association action.
Central Park has been competitive in most matches this season, often falling just a handful of games short.
While the Parkers have not won since defeating Karramomus last month, they have plenty to give this week against Old Students.
Just last week Central Park was only eight games off fourth-placed St Brendan’s.
But with the Saints on their way to playing finals, the Parkers will at least try and nullify some of the Students’ strong performers.
Scott Durling continues to plug away for his side, doing his best to force matches into tiebreakers.
Janelle and Elizabeth Pottenger are consistent in the women’s action, teaming up to be a difficult doubles duo to come up against.
But with Old Students in red hot form, there is a whole team effort needed from Central Park.
Should the Students be overcome in an upset victory, Shepparton North is in the prime position to pounce.
North faces bottom-placed Karramomus tomorrow as spots within the top four are not yet settled.
Having been defeated in a close loss to Old Students last week, Shepparton North will be keen to return to the winners list.
Karramomus had a huge loss last round against competition top side McEwen Reserve.
But McEwen will meet a side closer to its ability when it takes on St Brendan’s.
Some enthralling contests should ensue in the women’s doubles.
