Several local tennis sides tasted grand final glory on Saturday.

Avenel won its first Seymour-Euroa Tennis Association section one flag since 1992-93 with a hard-fought victory over Longwood Lawn, while the club’s junior section four side got up over Kilmore in the Broadford Junior Tennis Association decider.

The two Seymour sides competing also won junior flags — in sections one and five — but all three senior sides were knocked out at the semi-final stage of the Whittlesea Tennis Association competition.
