UPHILL men's team had a close match with top of the table Winscombe.

UPHILL men’s team had a close match with top of the table Winscombe.

The team of Bill Ponting (captain), Sourish Ganapathi, Matt Valentine and Paul Wright all played very well. Sourish with the help of Bill and Paul got the match to 2-2, but then Winscombe took the final two rubbers to edge the match 4-2.

At the midway point in the season, the clubs teams are all performing well.

The A team is yet to drop a single rubber and are looking good to claim their seventh consecutive league title.

The B team are doing well on their return to Division 1, it is probably going to take three wins from the final four to survive, but if it’s down to team spirit and effort the team still have a chance.

The C team have only played three games so far, so sit in mid table currently. The games against Portishead and Wyvern are going to determine whether they can challenge for promotion or look to survive in Division 3.

The D team have made a promising start winning three out of four games. Yet to play league leaders Nailsea and Yatton B, these two games and the return against Chew Valley will see if Uphill can maintain a place in one of the two promotion slots.

The E team have had a fine start after promotion to Division 5 this season, having won three out of five so far, they are looking good to maintain status and there is still an outside chance of second place if things go well.

The men’s team are sat in mid table at the turn of the year. Yet to field a settled side, they have had mixed results so far, and has certainly fulfilled it’s objective of giving lots of members a chance of league badminton.
