ADTA - As the Ararat and District Tennis Association home and away season draws closer to an end, Buangor has its eyes on one thing - a grand final berth.
The top four teams are almost ready for finals in three weeks, but Buangor will be the team tomorrow aiming to not drop any points against Landsborough.
Buangor and Ararat currently sit one point apart in second and third place on the ladder, while a lengthy 18 and 19 points off Crowlands, so you can see why a big win is vital for them.
The chances of Buangor claiming maximum points have been given a boost by the return of Ian and Susan Maconachie last week, adding resistance in both sections.
Playing alongside Danny Dyer, Josh Matthews, Monique Hargreaves and Marcus Matthews, the Maconachies and teammates could have an easy day.
Landsborough's winning chance is at long odds, however the last time these two teams met it was the underdogs who came out triumphant, so can they do this again is the question?
Aiden Lee returns for the Borough, as does big Ben Hodgetts, with the pair ready to put pressure on the powerful Buangor men.
Kira Payne has been in sparkling form since returning from the break, and along with Claire Monaghan and Jess Hogg, the trio are a good chance at sneaking points off the Buangor girls.
It could well come down to the clash between Buangor's Gen Rameka and the visitors Teresa McGee, time will tell.
In easily the match of the round, Ararat welcomes the ever so good Crowlands to its home courts.
This is going to be an absolute cracker of a match, as it has been twice so far this season.
The 2011/2012 grand finalists had quality hits on both occasions and tomorrow isn't expected to be any different, with both teams at near full strength.
Returning to the court for Crowlands will be Kate Vance, who will team with either Tiffany, Ashleigh or Mary-Lou Boatman, or Jo Price, clashing with the class of Carolyne Matthews, Jacqui Ralph and Claire Harricks.
Live wire Paul Vance and Keith Boatman have the honour of showing their experience to Ararat young guns Sam and Oakley Gason, while Alex Drosg could be the key to Ararat's chances.
Although it won last week, consistency hasn't been in Crowlands' favour, and itwill need to overcome this if it is to gain success once again.
Ararat desperately needs the points, but majority should fall into the hands of the ladder leaders in another epic battle.
Spectators' hands will be well over their eyes as the match draws to a close, that's how close this will be.
Elmhurst looks to expand on its points tally when it tackles Great Western.
At home Elmhurst has the advantage, but that's not all that swings in its favour.
Great Western's ladies will have it tough against the likes of Amy Harrison, Rachael Murray and Jenny Trengove, who have all been superb of late.
Points can more than likely be won by the Western in the men's section, but they're going to have to be right on their game.
Elmhurst has the power to really hurt Great Western, and if it is on song, the visitors could be in for a world of pain.
