|Round three of the Dimboola and District Tennis Association started with Friday tennis between Arkona and Rainbow at Dimboola.
It started off very closely in the mixed section and continued right throughout the night.
Rainbow got off to a flying start winning the first three mixed sets, only for Arkona to bounce straight back winning the final three sets. Going into the Men’s and Ladies it was tied on sets and Arkona up by one game.
The Men’s and Ladies sections were also closely contested. Rainbow took home the win in the men’s sections two sets to four, 40 games to 51 but again Arkona rallied, winning the ladies section four sets, 45 games to two sets, 31 games
Three set winners for the match were Tracey Jorgenson and Karen Hunter for Arkona and Simon Clugston for Rainbow.
The second game on the Friday night in Dimboola was a more one-sided affair with Antwerp putting on a dominant display of tennis, only dropping two sets for the night against Dimboola.
Danni Taylor took home the honours for Dimboola winning two of her sets with Karen Bridgewater and Kate Clark.
Even though one sided, there was still some tight sets played for the evening.
On Saturday, Brim hosted Jeparit in what was to be a tight tussle.
The day started with a singles match, where the more experienced player in Ben Inkster was able to combat his younger opponent Josiah Keam 9-1.
Brim were able to turn the mixed around finishing the section four sets to two ahead.
The Brim men proved they are a strength this season, winning five of the six sets. It was a role reversal in the Women’s section, with Jeparit helping their side to a five sets to zero win.
This made for an interesting result for the day, Brim coming out victors 9 sets 108 games 3 match points to Jeparit 8 sets 100 games 2 match points.
The final game of the round was between the two grand finalists from last season; Hopetoun and Warrack Gold at Hopetoun.
In the past these games have been won or lost in the Mixed section and again it didn’t disappoint. Warrack Gold got the early start winning three sets to two.
The Men’s section was also closely contested, but again Warrack Gold came away winners winning three sets to two. Jacob Holm for Hopetoun was impressive winning his three sets at number one.
Chris Kellett for Warrack Gold did his part, remaining undefeated for the year so far.
The Warrack Gold ladies outclassed the Hopetoun ladies with strong performances from Emma Koschitzke and Rikki Nitschke. Nicole McLean and Shiarne Petschel won the only ladies set in a tiebreaker.
