Uphill narrow the gap

Uphill Badminton Club’s B team defeated Wyvern A to narrow the gap to just one point between them.

UPHILL Badminton Club’s B and men’s A teams have been in league action, with the B team recording their second win in Division 1 and the men’s team losing.

The B team were away to Wyvern A and won by six rubbers to three. This reversed the earlier result when the teams played at the start of the season. The team, missing their first pair of Emily Page-Symonds and Anjam Ajif, was Emily Hollis, Will Hollis, Harriett Birt, Matt Potts, Steph Hancocks and Robin Curry.

Uphill started well winning all three mixed rubbers in straight games and followed this by winning the first two ladies’ rubbers in straight games and the first men’s rubber in three games.

Wyvern struck back by winning the last ladies’ rubber and the last two men’s rubbers. The only player to win all their rubbers was Emily Hollis for Uphill.
