Uphill Badminton Club’s A team travel to unbeaten Chew Valley and were well beaten 7-2.

The team of Paul Edwards, Becky Cox, Matt Cole, Christy Cole, Mark Edwards and Becky Halfpenny all gave it their best, but just came up short on the night going down 7-2.

The ladies were hard fought, with Christy and Becky winning a close three-game rubber to leave Chew 7-2 winners on the night.

The Under-12s gave a spirited display away to St Ursulas. Missing Marcus and Vincent and giving away several years and inches to their opponents, it was a tough match.

The team of Aidan, Isaac, Riley and Roman all gave it a good go and achieved several close scorelines. It is a credit to all four that despite the scoreline (0-36), there were still four smiling faces at the end.

The Under-16 team of Lewis Gilbert, Zion Chen, Alana and Emily Aldridge were involved in a thriller away to St Ursulas.

Uphill got off to their usual slow start with only Zion winning his singles, putting St Ursulas 3-1 up after the singles.

Lewis and Zion battled through the doubles to win, before the girls lost, leaving St Ursulas 4-2 up.

In the mixed, Lewis and Alana won in three, followed up by Zion and Emily winning in two. With the match tied at four-each, Uphill knew a draw would not be enough.

Lewis and Emily were superb winning 8-15, 15-13, 15-10, before Zion and Alana combined to finish the job to complete a fantastic comeback win 6-4.

The real stars were Alana and Emily mixing it in league action for the first time against boys and picking up two crucial wins each.
