Reigning premier remains on top

EFFORT: Forrest’s number three Chris Robbins shows determination for Forrest on Saturday.

Elliminyt White has continued its dominant start to the Polwarth and District Tennis Association season with a nine-set victory over Forrest.
Elliminyt established itself as the powerhouse of the association after winning last season’s championship and remains one of three undefeated teams in the A Grade competition.
Kawarren Red claimed its second win, dominating Bambra eight sets/52 games to 1/11, while Pennyroyal kept its winning streak alive with a seven-set victory over Elliminyt Black.
Elliminyt White trio Khan Beckett, Zoe Curtis and Nicole Curtis starred in their first match after missing the season opener, with Beckett dropping only three games in the nine sets/54 games to 0/26 victory.
Zoe Curtis said despite the margin, Forrest looked on the verge of a more competitive season after a winless 2009-10.
“We had some really good rallies, especially in the ladies,” she said.
“I thought they played really well, and I suppose with their new players it could take them a while to get used to how they play.”
Curtis said she was relieved her team was still competitive despite rain interrupting the mixed pairs.
“They were pretty terrible conditions, very windy,” she said.
“We had a fair few showers, but we didn’t have to stop until the last mixed.”
