Uphill Badminton Club held its internal men’s tournament with eight pairs taking part.

Uphill Badminton Club held its internal men’s tournament, with a bumper entry of eight pairs in one box over three courts, which saw 28 box games.

With handicaps from -5 to +4, there was a host of close games all well managed by Becky Halfpenny.

With the top four making the semis, the box scores were: Mark Edwards & Dennis Tsang 147; Paul Edwards & Harry Gardner 140; Clive Wood & Tony Wilsher Day 136; Rob Morray & Lewis Gilbert 135; Hao Dong & Zion Chen 132.

Mark & Dennis defeated Rob & Lewis 21-18 and Paul & Harry beat Clive & Tony 21-14.

The final was a thriller with never more than two or three points in it. At 18-18, Dennis nailed three short serves to give Mark & Dennis a 21-18 victory.

The men’s team concluded their season with a trip to Shepton Mallet to take on Wells City. The team of Paul Wright, Boby John, Tony Wilsher Day and Nigel Judge all played well in a thrilling match.

With numerous close games and four rubbers going to deciders, it was Wells who came out on top winning 4-2. Boby John gained wins with Paul and Nigel.
