Shepparton Lawn Tennis Club teams Bears and Bombers will be out to get one up on the other when they clash tomorrow in Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association.OLIVER CAFFREY March 14, 2014 4:20am
Another Shepparton Lawn Tennis Club grudge match will take place tomorrow.
Shepparton Bears and Shepparton Bombers will battle it out in a bid to take ascendancy into next week’s Premier One finals.
The teams have secured their positions on the Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association ladder, with the Bears almost certain to finish as minor premiers, while the Bombers cannot move from third.
After a week off due to the Labour Day long weekend, the two rivals will be eager to gain an advantage ahead of a likely rematch during the finals.
The Bombers’ Tim James will be missing, along with Kate Redfern and Nicole Limbrick.
James said despite the loss of several regular players for the game, it would be important to put up a good showing against the Bears.
‘‘We’re a good chance if we win our first final that we’ll come up against the Bears again, so the weekend will give us a bit of an indicator where we’re at,’’ James said.
‘‘Nick (Gattuso) and Jarrod (Bingham) played the tournament in Cobram and they had some pretty good results up there, so they’ll be in good form and ready to go.’’
Young gun Gattuso has continued to develop his game this season, and after finally defeating the Bears’ James Curtis-McDonald during the club championships, will take confidence into the clash.
James said with a disrupted run since the Christmas break, his side was still toying with different doubles combinations.
‘‘We’re probably not as settled as we would like, but we’ve got a few different ideas about who will play with who in the mixed doubles,’’ James said.
In other premier one games, Kialla takes on Echuca-Rich River, while Tatura will be looking to fine tune its finals preparations when it hosts winless Cobram.
