Two Uphill Badminton Club teams were in action last week, both in winning form.

UPHILL Badminton Club’s C and E teams were in action last week with both winning.

The C team were at home to Wells City in Division 3 and won by seven rubbers to two. The team had both Brian Hadley and Matthew Valentine missing and consisted of Julie O’Sullivan, Carl Harrison, Fiona Singleton, Billy Fear, Maureen Mathews and Glyn Davis.

Uphill got off to a good start by winning all the mixed rubbers in straight games, but the Wells City ladies hit back by winning the first two ladies’ rubbers, which both went to three games. Fiona and Maureen then won the third ladies rubber.

Uphill won all three men’s rubbers, despite the first going to three games and the third being won by Billy and Glyn 21-15, 23-21. The only players to win all their rubbers were Carl, Billy and Glyn from Uphill.

The E team, in Division 5 of the North Somerset League, were at home to Mark, who they lost 8-1 to at the start of the season. This time they won a close match by five rubbers to four.

This very young team of Harrison Whitehouse, Lauren Rickwood, Rowan Weekes, Beth Dunning, Luke Morgan (captain) and Chloe Palmer are now showing considerable improvement and becoming far more confident in their play.
