Dimboola and District Tennis Association saw a full round of matches taking place with harvest affecting some games and others fielding a complement of teams.

Hopetoun took over ladder leadership with a clean sweep of points against Rainbow, while Warracknabeal slipped a rung to second place after claiming four points against Dimboola.

Antwerp were too strong for Arkona dropping only one set for the day, while Brim closed to within two points of the top four when they claimed four points against Jeparit.

Warrack and Dimboola contested an even match thanks largely to the Warrack women where Emma Koschitzke and Rikki Nitschke played with the Dimboola ladies to help them gain a win in the ladies section.

Brim again travelled to Jeparit, with the visitor’s side being made up of four families all from Lah, the average age being 16 1/2 for the men’s side.

Both sides had harvest taking a toll, which provided an opportunity for the youngsters in the sides including Jeparit’s Max Inkster bumped straight to the top ranks as number one man.
