Venom moves Earth to please


Share post:

ALL OF THE STARS shone brilliantly when the Silver Hill Road Tennis Championship continued in front of a large crowd on Sunday night at Silver Hill hard courts.

But none were more blinding than three-times champion Mark “Venom” Griffith, who took just ten minutes to destroy hometown favourite Victor “Earth” Ward with two sows 21-5, 21-7. 

Griffith had shot to prominence with his first title in the inaugural tournament in 2012 when he beat Ward in the final after Ward had upset Julian “Michael Jackson” White in the semi-finals.

On Sunday night, Griffith showed how much work he has put in over the past ten years while Ward showed evidence that he had perhaps spent that time playing knockup games with ordinary players. Griffith sank his fangs into his opponent early, rushing to 16-2 and 16-4 advantages in the first and second games, respectively.
