There were a few red-faced results and fluctuating fortunes in the new season of Saturday afternoon Junior Tennis competition at Rotary Park.
Grant Clement's tactics were clear from the outset, making Cameron Maidment use every inch of the court in his 9-3 victory. In only his second week of competition, Ky Brown is staking a claim to be promoted to the next level at the end of the season.
Tully Davies could not match the consistency and left-arm play of Ky both in the singles (6-0), then with Holly Kajewski in the doubles (6-0).
The surprise of the day and the longest match was when division 3 player Kyle Luthe outlasted division one's Mary Jo Dowsett in a match of consistency and lots of running.
The younger brigade in the Aviva Hot Shots started on Saturday and Monday, with increased numbers and excitement from the new players.
Saturday brought together the different standards of players, some using the smaller courts with the lower compression balls and others the low compression balls with the normal sized court.
