|Dimboola and District Tennis Association has resumed after the harvest/Christmas/school holiday break and the first match played for the round was on Friday night.
Antwerp hosted Arkona in perfect conditions and were able to win convincingly to put them six points ahead on Arkona on the ladder.
Jeparit hosted Brim where they played with five men and five ladies. Jeparit claimed one point for the day against Brim when their men won four of the five sets. Brim’s ladies were too strong for Jeparit. They won all five sets and only lost 14 games.
Rainbow travelled to Hopetoun and were low on numbers. They borrowed two Hopetoun men and the teams were able to play the day with six men and five ladies.
This meant there was a men’s singles matched played. Hopetoun’s Jacob Holm defeated Rhys Boehm 9-1. Hopetoun won all the mixed and men’s sets. Rainbow’s ladies claimed the point in the ladies section by winning three of the five sets played.
The final match saw Warrack Gold host Dimboola and the format of play for the day was four men and four ladies. The results appear to be very one sided with Warrack claiming all five match points for the day, but in actual fact it was a close encounter.
The mixed section ended with both teams winning two sets each, but the Warrack team won 30 games, which was eight more than Dimboola’s 22.
The men’s section was a similar story with both teams winning two sets each. Warrack won one extra game than Dimboola and denied them the chance to win a match point for the day.
