Uphill Badminton Club enjoyed a big social function, as well as the men’s team and two junior matches in the past week.

Uphill Badminton Club had just three matches last week along with a big social function.

The men’s team travelled to Churchill to take on Winscombe. The team of Paul Wright, Bill Ponting, Tony Wilsher Day and Nigel Judge all put up a good show.

There were numerous tight games, but Tony and Nigel were the sole victors on the night leaving Winscombe 5-1 winners.

The weekend saw two well-matched junior league matches versus Clevedon.

The Under-14s was an even contest, with the singles being shared two each. Uphill wins for Shuo Shuo Jin and Lewis Conroy and two Clevedon wins for Georgia and Lewis.

The doubles had lots of close scores with Uphill taking five of the six to take overall victory 7-3. Congratulations to Shuo Shuo, Lewis, David and Hannah.

The Under-16s was even closer. Uphill took the singles 3-1 with wins for Zion Chen, Marcus Pan and Vincent Tsang. In the doubles there were a host of tight matches. These were shared three each to leave Uphill 6-4 winners.

All four players did well Zion, Marcus, Vincent and Emily Aldridge.

Thanks to Nicola Wall and her two teams and parents for coming down to play two great matches.

Saturday saw the club hold its main annual fundraiser quiz night at Allstars in Weston.

A record turnout of 63 people across 13 teams made for a fun and enjoyable evening with a healthy amount raised towards club funds. A big thank you to Pete Wallington of Allstars for his continued support of this event.
