Line-ups chase premierships on Bendigo courts

PREMIERSHIP glory will be up for grabs at the Bendigo Tennis Association courts in Nolan Street on Saturday afternoon.

Spring Gully Brougham Arms will start favourite in the premier league clash with BLTC Metro from 1pm.

Brougham Arms likely team: Matt Hartland, Jamie Brown, Shane Burke, Zach Robinson, Jess Hartland and Danielle Bowles.

Metro likely team: Zac Lethlean, Isaac Watson, Sam McHarg, Grant Leader, Tamara Wright and Rashelle Blencowe.

Round 2: Brougham Arms 8-83 d Metro 4-61. Round 7: Brougham Arms 7-74 d Metro 5-73. Round 12: Metro 8-80 d Brougham Arms 4-56. Round 17: Brougham Arms 7-82 d Metro 5-76.

There are some outstanding battles to be fought.

Hartland and Brown have led the way for the Broughie, and Lethlean and Watson have done the same for Metro.

Brougham Arms holds the edge in experience, but Metro’s men have performed well all year and should keep it close.

For Metro, it could all come down to how Wright and Blencowe play.

In last weekend's semi-final, Wright and Blencowe starred against Rising Sun stars Rebecca Tweed and Tova Penno.

Wright and Blencowe will at least need to hold their own against the Brougham Arms pair of Hartland and Bowles.

This contest could be in the balance at the mixed doubles where Hartland and Bowles excel in that form of the game.

Hard to go against the form side all year in Brougham Arms. The Gully to win 7-5.

In section one it's an all-Spring Gully battle between the top two teams, Racqueteers and Panthers.

Racqueteers likely team: Shane Saunderson, Simon Wood, Bruce Carpenter, Narelle McPhee, Jackie Pembroke and Alison Lugg.

Panthers likely team: Kevin Sorugen, Ryan Brook, Steve Easey, Debbie Bish, Nicole Vagg and Helen Dudley.
