Players will be hoping for better weather for the Stawell Tennis Club Friday night competition grand final tonight.

The last two rounds were abandoned with poor weather forcing organisers to call play to a halt.

The grand final will be between Frewstal and Stawell Toyota.

Frewstal put points on the board early in the season to finish clearly on top of the ladder while Stawell Toyota may have been lucky to hold on to second spot as the teams below them lost the opportunity to climb the ladder in the final few weeks.

In the only encounter between these two teams in round three Frewstal took the points by just 7 games so a close contest can be expected.

Stawell Toyota will be hoping that their captain and club number one ranked male Blair Hart can get their side off to a good start up against finals specialist Howard Dunn.

The other match up that will have a strong effect on the nights final results will be the between the two most improved juniors who have stepped up to senior tennis this year in Frewstal’s Zayne Hall and Toyota’s Jonah O’Shannessy.

Third and fourth placed sides Farrers Tyrepower and David O Jones Mitre 10 will battle it out for pride in a consolation final to give all players one last bash for the year.

Selley’s and Meyer Timber will battle it out in the Wednesday night A Grade grand final next week after winning their respective semi finals. 

Bremick and David O Jones Mitre 10 will play off in the B Grade grand final.
