FINALS from across central Victoria's netball leagues are beginning to heat up. 

The first grand final for the region will be played this weekend, when the best netballers from the Heathcote and District Netball Association take to the court. 

Reigning A-grade champions Colbinabbin will be looking to defend its title when it takes North Bendigo. 

The Bulldogs finished the season on top of the ladder and won its spot in the league's deciding game when it defeated Mount Pleasant at the weekend. 

During the home and away season North Bendigo won two of its games against the Grasshoppers. 

However, earlier in the finals series, Colbinabbin scored a dramatic two-goal win against the Bulldogs to progress to the grand final. 

Here is the region's netball finals fixture:
