THE grand finals of the 2017/18 tennis season are locked in.

And Rochester will be the dominant side on the day.

Seven Rochester teams will appear across seven grand finals featuring teams from the region.

With all grand finals in the CTA taking place at the Echuca Lawn Tennis Club, the clubs will be travelling to get their shot at premiership glory.

Rich River 1, the dominant side in section one play this year, will be looking to make it three in a row as they come up against Rochester 1, the side who won the two before Rich River’s streak began.
