HEADING into the final day of matches this Sunday, there are several local tennis players in line to win their respective age groups in the Achieve Anything Super Series.

The series which is now into its third year sees players travelling from all over the North Coast and North West to play tennis at both Sawtell and Westside tennis clubs.

Started by the club’s respective coaches Eli Baylis and Allan Pade, the Super Series runs five times a year to give juniors a chance to play in a series of tennis tournaments closer to home.

This Sunday’s play is at Westside where hopefully talented locals can turn their series leads into memorable series wins.

The results so far see Westside’s Lily Pade set to win the 10-girls while Grafton’s Jacob Hegedus is in front for the 10-boys.

Junction Hill’s Kaitlin Pardo is currently in front for the 12-girls.

A Sawtell quartet is also in line for a series win in the event sponsored by Key Employment, Park Beach Physio and Westlawn Finance.

Hudson Kacsics is the series leader in the 12-boys, Alex Studley and Bill Childs are in front in the 14- girls and boys respectively, while Alex Raven is clinging to a slender lead in the 16-boys age division. Damien Phillips from Westside Tennis Club looks set to take out the 21-boys.
