Uphill Badminton Club travelled to Mark and won by seven rubbers to two.
UPHILL Badminton Club only had the D team in action this week.
Away to Mark, they won by seven rubbers to two. The team had Ellen Davis, Carl Harrison and Sourish Ganapathi unavailable, so Teresa Davison, Matt Potts and Tom Higgins came in to play with Emily Look, Caroline Higgins and Billy Fear.
The team quickly settled down and Teresa and Matt won the first mixed rubber, Emily and Tom won a hard fought second mixed and Caroline and Billy won the third mixed with ease.
The ladies’ rubbers were closer with Teresa and Emily working hard to win the first rubber, before Mark ladies’ fought back with Elaine Coward and Alison Kelly beating Teresa and Caroline. In the last ladies rubber Emily and Caroline worked hard in the first game before losing to Elaine Callaghan and Alison Kelly in two.
The Uphill men then won all the men’s rubbers comfortably. The players to win all their rubbers were Matt, Tom and Billy from Uphill.
