The Under-18 side of Anuj Gupta, Lewis Gilbert, Archit Singhal, Ben Moore, Zion Chen and Vincent Tsang took part in six singles and nine doubles.

Anuj and Lewis both went down in deciding games to their opponents before Archit, Ben, Zion and Vincent picked up wins to put Uphill 4-2 up.

Uphill took control in the doubles and despite numerous close rubbers, took them all to come out 13-2 winners.

Special mention for 11-year-old Vincent stepping up for the Under-18 team and winning all his four rubbers.

The Under-15 side of David Gumus, Alana Burstow, Lewis Conroy, Elliot Millard, Mason and Daisy Hooper all played well.

The singles were evenly matched with four of the six going to three. Alana, Lewis and Daisy gained wins to put things level at 3-3 after the singles.

Into the doubles and Llanishen just held the edge in numerous well-matched rubbers. The doubles element went to Llanishen 7-2 leaving the final score 10-5 to Llanishen.

Player of the match was Daisy for winning three of her four matches.

A big thanks to Dave and his parents/helpers for hosting Uphill so well.
