Frewstal finished the season way out in front on the ladder but that means nothing tonight as Farrrers Tyrepower just need a good night on the court to bring the whole season undone.
These two sides have met three times already with the first result a Frewstal smashing with them winning by 40 games, the next result a complete turnaround with Farrers getting the points by 6 games and the last match up had Frewstal making it 2-1 for the season by taking the victory by 20 games.
The ladies sets hold the key to who finishes on top with Frewstal’s Jade Cross, Rebbecca Siddall, Tess Bailey and Kimberly Blake showing good consistent form.
It will be up to Farrer’s Kim Hutton, Chelsea Maddocks, Kasey Mornane and Bridget Johnson to bring their best and steal some valuable sets from their opponents to give their team a chance at causing a boilover.
It is sure to be a fierce battle regardless of who comes out on top with some handy backhands and superb shots set to be on offer with the two best teams playing each other.
Frewstal captain Nathan Baker said the team was confident going into the season decider.
"I think we have had consistency across all players,” he said.
“Our strength is the double pairings and that the players are playing well together in the matches.
“But Farrer’s will be a big threat, they are led by Howard Dunn who has been in many grand finals.
“I have been in the last three grand finals along with other team members, although we do have some young players who are experiencing their first grand final.”
Baker said the key to his team playing well will be to continue doing what it has done all season.
“Success will come if players are relaxed,” he said.
“Hopefully we finish the night strongly in the mixed doubles and can finish with the overall win and the title.”
Frewstal will welcome back Brian O'Shannessy, who missed the last game.
Baker said it was the only change expected.
“He is a great all round player and at times has been filling in as number one player throughout the season,” he said.
“So it will be a big inclusion to our team.”
Farrer’s Tyrepower captain Howard Dunn said his team will not change for the grand final
“We will go in pretty much the same as last game,” he said.
"Where grand finals are won and lost is in the lower order, the top order players will be pretty close and we think we have the right mix.
"We have a pretty even side right throughout.
“That key to winning will be to avoid any big losses early in the match.”
Hugh’s prediction - Frewstal to win by 14 games and become premiers.
