Place in showdown up for grabs

AFTER last week's washout, Saturday's semi-finals become knockout in the Bendigo Tennis Association's premier league and section one competitions.

First takes on fourth, and second plays third at the Bendigo Bank tennis complex in Nolan Street.

The ladder-leading Spring Gully Brougham Arms takes on Spring Gully Bigpond on courts one, five and six.

Brougham Arms dominant men’s core led by Matt Hartland, Jamie Brown and Shane Burke will be tough for Bigpond’s Jack Baker, Brad Slingo and Jayd Davis.

Bigpond will be aiming to perform well in doubles and pinching a singles set here or there to keep things close.

On the women’s side, Jess Hartland will go against Bigpond number one Heather Robbins.

Brougham Arms could play Danielle Bowles,  Bronwyn Osborne or Lynda Gallagher at number two.

Prediction: Bigpond to fight hard, but Brougham Arms will be too strong in an 8-4 win.

The all-BLTC match between Rising Sun and Metro is on courts two, seven and eight.

Metro's Zac Lethlean, Isaac Watson, Sam McHarg and Grant Leader have been strong all season.

Michael Smyth, Nick Bath, Michael Nihill and Stuart Johansen face a big task.

Rising Sun's Rebecca Tweed and Tova Penno take on Tamara Wright and Rashelle Blencowe.

This match could be in the balance at the last set.

Metro to win on games.
