The Ararat and District Tennis Association season will continue with Landsborough and Elmhurst set to do battle under lights on Friday night.

It is a rare clash under lights and will make for an interesting clash with Elmhurst out to regain top spot after losing to Crowlands last week.

Landsborough has a one-point buffer ahead of bottom-placed Ararat and will hoping a strong performance can keep it in the top four.

In the other match, Crowlands will be at home against the reigning premiers with the ladder-leaders set to go into the match as favourites.

Ararat will have to be at its best to get the points with Crowlands playing some high quality tennis in recent weeks.

Buangor is scheduled to have the week off, courtesy of a round nine bye with the team set to remain in third spot on the ladder at the conclusion of the round’s fixtured matches.

With only one round remaining following the weekend before the teams enjoy a few weeks off over Christmas, chances are limited to make their move.
