The Port Lincoln Tennis Association had a full program of tennis this week with the ladders across all the competitions starting to take shape before the Christmas break.
Green, Orange and Red Ball Zambrero encouragement award winners were Sam, Pearson, Ashlyn, Briley and Ray.
One of the most entertaining matches of the round was between two of the front running teams, Nadal and Stosur. It came down to the wire.

Kodah Young and Sam Lydeamore dominated their match and gave their team a one-game advantage going into the singles.
Nadal got off to a great start with Sally Cabot in sensational form, winning her match in convincing style.
Hunter Smith fought hard, winning in the tiebreak seven points to four.
