Liston (women) and MCC Glen Iris Valley (men) have both claimed top position on the Tennis Victoria Premier League ladder. The defending women’s champions, Liston, opened their campaign with two strong victories as the men’s MCC Glen Iris Valley squad shocked title favourites Kooyong Lawn on Saturday, with a five rubbers to one win.
