PUBLISHED: 09:25 06 January 2017
Uphill Badminton Club’s men’s B team finished the first half of the season unbeaten.
Uphill Badminton Club finished 2016 in style with a 5-1 men’s B team victory away to Mark.
The youthful quartet of Raymond, Harry, Rhys and Dong proved too hot to handle on the night. Three of the six rubbers went to three games, but Mark’s sole success came in the final match of the night, with Harry and Rhys being edged out 21-18. Raymond and Dong won all their rubbers on the night.
With five wins from five, Uphill are nicely positioned in top spot going into the new year.
The junior club ended the year with some festive fun and games at their final sessions.
The junior club continues to thrive with more than 75 children registered aged between four and 18 years.
Weekly coaching sessions run every Saturday and four junior age group teams take part in the local Avon Junior League, along with numerous opportunities for tournament play.
New junior members are still being welcomed, especially in the 11-18 age categories. For more information, please visit www.uphillbadminton.co.uk or the Uphill Junior Club Facebook page.
