STC - Stawell Tennis Club's Friday night tennis competition starts again tonight with seven teams competing for the 2013/14 premiership cup.
There are some new names taking to the courts this season to showcase their skills as well as many junior players graduating to the senior competition.
Round one sees Stawell Toyota versus Farrer's Tyrepower, with Toyota's Ben Leslie and Jaiden Bach first up against a Farrer's lineup led by Shane Freeland and Kim Hutton.
Raunchy Rooster, with Murray Hart and Marianne Mitchell leading the charge, will take on David O Jones Mitre 10 which is headed by Joel Freeland and Claire Hodgetts.
The final match up for the round will have Shane Field and Sue Blakey's Frewstal outfit up against Brian O'Shannessy and Jade Cross' Cassidy Painting, who will be looking to start the season off with a win.
Again this year, a bye team will be in place so Howard Dunn and Debbie Hart's group of players (Crowe Horwath) can leave their racquets in the covers for one more week before taking to the courts.
Stawell Tennis Club will again make available barbecue meals at a small cost each Friday night for players and their families during the season.
All players will be keen to dust off the cobwebs and fire down some cracking serves, as well as putting away an overhead smash or two.
Matches start at 6pm. Good hitting!
