UPHILL Badminton Club B and E teams have been in North Somerset League action, while the Under-15 and Under-18 teams have had matches in the Avon Junior League.

The B team were at home to Frys A and lost by seven rubbers to two. The Uphill team consisted of Ellie Jewell, Brian Hadley, Denise Burton, Rob Morray, Kate Robinson and Andy Potts.

Only two rubbers went to three games namely the first mixed in which Ellie and Brian succumbed to Jane Guy and Pete Trevitt. Ellie then won both her ladies rubbers with support from Denise and Kate.

Kate, who is a junior, has been playing in the D team this season, so to win a rubber with Ellie in Division 1 was a great achievement. Other than for the first mixed and two ladies rubbers, the Frys players proved too strong.
