Premier League leaders in crucial clash on grass

TOP teams BLTC Rising Sun and Spring Gully Brougham Arms clash in Saturday afternoon's return of the Bendigo Tennis Association's Premier League season.

Matches for Premier League and section one will be at the Bendigo Lawn Tennis Club in Barnard Street from 1pm.

Rising Sun and Brougham Arms do battle on courts five, six and seven.

The Sun leads Brougham Arms by seven points on the ladder.

The Rising Sun is missing key players, with Terry Smith and Michael Smyth still getting over injuries. 

This will put a lot of pressure on Nick Bath, Tim McNamara, Zoltan Smyth and late inclusion Michael Nihill to compete against the Broughies Jamie Brown, Matt Hartland, Zach Robinson and Jayden Baber.

Rising Sun's Rebecca Tweed and Tova Penno take on the in-form Jessica Hartland and Lynda Gallagher.

Spring Gully Bigpond will be aiming for a strong showing against BLTC Metro.

BLTC Metro will be without young guns Zach Lethlean or Isaac Watson because of tournament commitments.

Sam McHarg, Grant Leader, Jayden Blencowe and Archie Wallis take on Jack Baker, Brad Slingo, Jayd Davis and Doug Ryan.

Tamara Wright and Rachelle Blencowe are likely to have the edge on Heather Robbins and Lani Hamilton.
