Big road tennis serve-off tonight
CHAMPIONS PAST, present and future will be on show when the feature clashes are staged in round two of the National Sports Council’s Inter-Parish Road Tennis finals at the Springer Memorial School tonight from 7:30.
With the A Class, the B class and the 21-and-up players taking to the court with some attractive monetary prizes at stake, the fans following the action at home on live television and those who are expected to throng the courtside will not be disappointed.
Last night, the Masters, Ladies and 15-and-under titles were decided, and tonight St Michael’s deadly duo of Mark “Venom” Griffith and Antonio “Lil Man” Daniel will be gunning for St Michael’s fifth consecutive A class crown, while the pair of Anthony “Ears” Mitchell and Marson Johnson will be hoping to capture Christ Church’s first in their fifth trip to the finals.
With prizes of $10 500 and $5 000 on offer, Christ Church face the daunting task of meeting a duo accustomed to playing big shots and winning big money. Last year Daniel returned from retirement to claim $17 000 in winnings while Griffith carried home $12 000.
Johnson, who has been missing out on wins in the past due to a lack of fitness, will have to battle the supreme fitness of Griffith, while the solid Mitchell clashes with shots master Daniel.
