Uphill Badminton Club took part in their final friendly match before the league season opens.

In a final friendly encounter as preparation for the new season, Uphill Badminton Club took on a strong Avon county team which produced a high standard match.

The first three mixed rubbers all went to three games with Avon edging all three. Matt and Christy Cole going down 19-21, 21-17, 17-21 being the closest.

The ladies’ doubles saw some close games and long rallies, but the Avon strength came through to take all three rubbers in two games against Abi, Christy and Becky.

The men’s saw more joy for Uphill with Paul and Matt having a top quality match against Dennis and Paul, with the Avon duo winning out 21-18, 21-17.
