Uphill Badminton Club suffered a loss, draw and a victory in the last week of league matches.

Uphill Badminton Club had three matches with a win, draw and defeat recorded.

The C team missing Lewis Gilbert, Harry Gardner, Marcus Pan and Lucy Lou travelled to Chew Valley to take on an experienced outfit.

The team of Anna Bickell, Heather Russell, Beth Chadwick, Ben Moore, Zion Chen and Vincent Tsang all put up a good fight.

The mixed went to Chew in straight games. The men’s similarly all went to Chewm despite the Uphill boys taking two rubbers to deciding ends.

The girls again took the first ladies to three before Uphill got on the board with Heather and Beth winning 21-8, 21-17 to pick us up a point.

Special mention to Vincent making his senior league debut at 11-years-old, without doubt our youngest ever male debutant.

The men’s A team hosted Winscombe A and gained a comprehensive 6-0 win. The quartet of Paul Edwards, Ricky Rae, Billy Fear and Harrison Whitehouse all played well to gain a whitewash with all six games being won in two games.

Uphill men’s B team drew 3-3 with Wells City B. The four of Paul Wright, Tony Wilsher-Day, Bill Ponting and Ben Moore were involved in a tight affair. Each pair of rubbers was shared one apiece in straight games to leave the final score three each.

The closest game of the night saw Paul and Ben win a thriller 29-27. Man of the match again was young Ben winning all three of his rubbers.
