The girls’ quartet of Riley Badman, Ayshen Gumus, Shenay Gumus and Natalia Trybus bounced back in style following last week’s defeat with a dominant 10-0 victory against a young Falcons side.

The singles and doubles all went to the Uphill girls, but despite the scoreline there were a number of close games and long rallies with all eight players enjoying a full two-hour match on the court.

Special mention was made of eight-year-old Aakarsha from Falcons, who came in as a late replacement to play her part in the under-14 match.

The Uphill boys’ team of Aadit, Aidan, Christos, Louis, Evan and Daniel took part in a six-a-side friendly with many of the 12 boys in their first or second inter-club match.

Uphill took the singles 9-3 before taking the majority of the doubles to run out 33-9 overall winners.
