Boxing Day could have a whole new meaning when home town favourite Victor “Earth” Ward and the dangerous Mark “Venom” Griffith square off in the finals of the Silver Hill Road Tennis Championships tonight.
Griffith and Ward will be vying for their first major title with Griffith’s tremendous talent being downplayed over the years because of the class of his fellow St Michael opponents.
On the other hand, Ward has shied away from competitions, opting to play on his home court in Silver Sands, where the final will be played, or in The Pine.
Both Ward and Griffith proved their supreme fitness and ability to play superb road tennis by topping a number of big names on their trek to tonight’s finals. (KB)
