|Saturday saw the start of the Dimboola and District Tennis Association 2018/2019 season where players dusted off the racquets for another year of tennis.
The weather was perfect and already some excellent games of tennis have been played, hopefully indicating a great season of tennis to follow.
Jeparit played host to Dimboola in a tight battle where five tie-breakers were played throughout the day. Jeparit claimed the first three mixed sets with two of those being tie-breakers. Dimboola then claimed the next three and won the section by nine games.
Dimboola’s men were too strong and claimed all six sets. While Jeparit’s women claimed four of the six sets to win the point.
Christiana Henke and Raylene Werner from Jeparit and Rob Barry, Will Schilling, Tony Goss and Danni Haebich of Dimboola won all three sets.
Dimboola defeated Jeparit 11 sets, 137 games to Jeparit 7 sets, 116 games.
The sole Warracknabeal side, Warrack Gold, hosted Arkona in the second match of the round. Warrack Gold started the day with a dominate win in the mixed section only dropping one set, which set them up to win the day.
Arkona’s men were able to win their section by claiming four sets to Warrack Gold’s two.
This result was then reversed in the Ladies where Warrack Gold won four Arkona’s two.
Emma Koschitzke, Lauren Kellett and Mitchell Hadley from Warrack Gold and Arkona’s Nick Pietsch won all their sets.
Warrack Gold 11 sets, 136 games defeated Arkona 7 sets, 115 games.
The match between Antwerp and Hopetoun was a close encounter, however the final score looks very one sided.
Last years Premiers, Hopetoun claimed the mixed section by just three games. Both teams won three sets each, but Hopetoun won 48 games to Antwerp’s 45.
Hopetoun’s men were able to secure four of the six sets to claim their point.
The ladies section was again even on three sets each, but Hopetoun won five more games to claim the point to have a clean sweep of the points on offer.
Hopetoun’s Jacob Holm and Mal McLean, and Daniel Greig were three set winners.
Hopetoun 10 sets, 132 games to Antwerp 8 sets, 121 games.
The final match between Rainbow and Brim saw them compete with four men and four ladies.
Brim proved to be too strong, winning all four sets in the mixed and the ladies.
Mark Bastin and Jakob Cocks were able to claim the only set for Rainbow. Rylee Cocks and Rebecca Bastin were narrowly defeated by Casey Quick & Kylie O’Connor in a tie-breaker.
Brim 11 sets, 105 games defeated Rainbow 1 set, 43 games.
