Uphill Badminton Club enjoyed a summer friendly match against the Avon development squad.

With the new season fast approaching, an Uphill side of Paul Edwards Matt Cole Mark Edwards Callum Grayson and Robin Curry hosted a five-a-side men’s match against the Avon development squad.

The format was everyone playing each other in a best of two rubbers, making a match total out of 20 games.

Uphill got off to a strong start and at the halfway stage had stormed into an 8-2 lead. The highlight of which saw a marathon 28-26 win in one game for Paul and Robin over Fiach and Rohan.

The Avon side fought back well in the second half of the evening and with five of the last 10 games having a score of 19 or more, the final score read Uphill 12, Avon 8.
