Uphill Badminton Club enjoyed a successful week, with all five teams recording victories.

Last week saw Uphill Badminton Club’s senior A, B and C teams in action, along with the junior Under-14 and 18 teams, producing five wins.

A solid 9-0 was gained for the A team away to Winscombe A. The mixed were tight with Paul Edwards and Hannah Warren winning 20 and 14, Matt and Christy Cole 21 and 13 and Mark Edwards and Rebecca Cox 21-14, 21-23, 21-15.

The ladies all went Uphill’s way with Hannah and Becky going to 3 sets. Similarly the men’s all went to Uphill with Mark and Matt being taken to three, winning 21-12 in a decider.

This third win of the season puts the team comfortably in mid-table fighting for third spot.

A valuable win was achieved by the B team of Emily Page-Symonds, Rebecca Falwasser, Caroline Higgins, James Sole, Rob Morray and Tom Miller.

With Billy Fear struck down with illness, James stood in admirably and was man of the match, winning all his three rubbers.

The mixed all went the way of Uphill with Tom and Caroline pushed all the way winning 22-20 in the 3rd.

James won both his men’s in three with firstly Rob and then Tom. James and Rob won a thriller 21-19 in the decider.

Emily and Becky added their ladies in two straight games to complete a much-needed 6-3 win.

The junior C team juggernaut rolls on with a sixth 9-0 win of the campaign out of eight matches.

The team of Anna Bickell, Heather Russell, Lucy Loud, Harry Gardner, Archit Singhal and Ben Moore all played well, winning all nine rubbers in two games.

With two matches left, the team need a maximum of 12 games (16 points) to clinch the league title. Next up is Chew Valley away.

The Under-14 team of Zion Chen, Marcus Pan, Shuo Shuo Jin and David Gumus travelled to Bristol and triumphed 7-3.

The singles went to Uphill 3-1, with Zion losing to Joe and Marcus beating Alessio. Shuo Shuo and David defeated Bo and Adorna respectively in deciding games.

The doubles produced lots of close games with three rubbers going to deciders. Uphill edged this element 4-2 to win the match 7-3.

Man of the match Shuo Shuo won all four of his rubbers.

The undefeated Under-18 team travelled to Bristol looking for their third win from three. The team of Anuj Gupta, Harry Gardner, Lewis Gilbert and Ben Moore all played well in a evenly-matched contest.

This showed in the singles with three of the four rubbers going to three games. Anuj lost to Om in the third and Harry lost to Alex eight in the third. Lewis defeated Archit in a decider before Ben showed the way winning one and seven.

As so often, the Uphill boys turned it on for the doubles winning all six, despite three going to the third end.

The showpiece rubber one and two doubles was of the highest quality with Anuj and Harry in impressive form, defeating St Ursulas top pairing Om and Alex 15-3, 12-15, 15-13. The final match score being 8-2 to Uphill.
