THE heat will be on as Rising Sun takes on Metro in this Saturday's all-BLTC clash in the Bendigo Tennis Association's premier league.
Bendigo's best will be at the Bendigo Bank tennis complex in Nolan Street to contest the BTA's 11th round.
Top team Spring Gully Brougham Arms has the bye.
Rising Sun and Metro will play on courts one, six and seven.
Rising Sun leads Metro by three points in the race for second place.
The key for Rising Sun will be how well Michael and Zoltan Smyth can handle Metro’s young guns in Zac Lethlean, Isaac Watson and Ryan Leader.
Rebecca Tweed and Tova Penno look to have a slight edge over Metro’s Tamara Wright and Rashelle Blencowe.
This match could be decided in the mixed doubles.
Prediction: Metro to win 7-5.
BLTC Noonan Electrical takes on Spring Gully Bigpond on courts two, eight and nine.
Noonan Electrical is on the rebound from a big loss to Spring Gully Brougham Arms.
Jack Baker, Jayd Davis and Jayden Blencowe lead Bigpond, but Ben Noonan, Sam Storer and Jono Guy always work hard.
If Bigpond’s Heather Robbins and Lani Hamilton take control then Bigpond should win.
Prediction: Bigpond to win 9-3.
Section one play at Bendigo Lawn Tennis Club.
