STC - With the business end of the Friday night Stawell Tennis Club senior competition fast approaching, it is time for several teams to stand up and prove they are genuine finals contenders.
There is a log jam on the ladder, with Stawell Gold Mines, Cassidy Painting, Trackside Bar and Bistro and Farrer's Tyrepower all clamouring for a top four position.
Cassidy Painting have a fight on their hands tonight when they come against Stawell Joinery.
Jade Cross, Kaye Ellis and Abby Kaczynski are set to battle Suzie Blakey and Anna Sullivan while it will be a showdown between an in-form Phil Hutton against Nathan McConnell and veteran Les McLeod.
Matt Freeland and Jade Cross will be hoping their lower ranked players Jamie Bach, Kirsty Coote and Kristy Matthew can withstand Joinery's Harry Driscoll, Delaney Humphris and Kirby Griffiths.
Stawell Gold Mines are hoping to extend their winning run with victory against Trackside Bar and Bistro tonight.
Competition will be fierce right throughout the match, with Andrew Dunn and Matt Dwyer set to tackle Murray Hart and Brett Graveson.
The focus will be on the youngsters as both teams boast plenty of talent .
Jake Stainsby and Michael Hackwill (Gold Mines) and Jackson Dark and Brae Scantleton (Trackside) are ones to watch.
In the women's, Gold Mines Megs Mitchell and Kate Reading go head to head with Debbie Hart and Chris Graveson in what should be an intriguing contest.
Stawell Toyota will be hoping a bye doesn't interrupt their good form as they set out to defeat Frewstal tonight.
Although it won't be easy, with Frewstal showing they have plenty of depth.
Youngsters Cody Driscoll and Jesse Barber have been in sparkling form and Jesse Hannett and Robert Armstrong must be wary of the pair, while Colene Matthews and Narelle O'Shannessy are set to challenge Emma Dwyer and Casey Ringin.
