The Uphill Under-18 team of Jack Rickwood, Harry Gardner, Lewis Gilbert, Ben Moore, Alana and Sophie all put up a good fight against a strong Penarth line-up, before going down 6-9.

The match started with six singles with some great rubbers. Ben got Uphill’s sole success beating Cherisse, while Lewis had a great battle against Saffron losing out in three. This gave Penarth a 5-1 lead after the singles.

Into the doubles and Uphill found their form. There were some great battles with wins for all players on both sides.

The tightest rubber saw Jack and Ben defeat Adil and Cherisse 15-14, 13-15, 15-13. Uphill took the doubles element 5-4, leaving Penarth 6-3 winners on the day.

Man of the match was Uphill’s Ben Moore winning all four of his rubbers.

The Uphill six of Marcus Pan, Vincent, Josh, Harry, Hannah and Riley all played well and all picked up wins.

The singles saw Penarth take a 4-2 lead with Marcus and Vincent taking the wins for Uphill and Josh Kritthik Bhavana and Jay for Penarth.

In the doubles there were some excellent match-ups. It was a great run out for all 13 players after the summer break and Penarth edged the doubles 5-4 to run out 9-6 overall winners.

Man of the match was Uphill’s Marcus Pan winning all four of his rubbers. Big thanks go to Sarah Jones and her Penarth army of players and parents.
