Uphill stay top after derby whitewash

Uphill Badminton Club’s A team defeated its B side to stay top of the North Somerset Mixed League.

UPHILL Badminton Club’s A & B teams started the new year with a league match against each other in Division 1.

The A team were at home against the B team and won by nine rubbers to nil. The team consisted of Ellie Jewell, Paul Edwards, Christy Langford, Matt Cole, Becky Halfpenny and captain Mark Edwards, while the B team had Emily Page-Symonds, Anjam Ajif, Harriett Birt, Matt Potts, Steph Hancocks, and Robin Curry.

As expected, the A team won all the rubbers comfortably in two games with the exception of the first men’s between Paul and Matt Cole and Anjam and Matt Potts, which went to three games, with Amjam and Matt winning the first game, before Paul and Matt came back to win the next two.

This friendly club always welcomes both junior (five to 18-year-olds) and senior new members and organises a variety of social events throughout the year.
