Starting Saturday, the duo will compete in the singles championships before playing in the women’s team in the iconic Eire Cup event alongside Elaine Coverdale (Essendon) and Patricia Devlin (Castlemaine). After weeks of training and preparations, Eiffert can’t wait to head north to compete. “We’ve been training down in Melbourne and also up here at Quarry Hill and we are excited to get up to Sydney to play,” Eiffert said.
