Portchester Pétanque Club
Although we only had 10 teams and a heavy shower at lunch time the event went well with a good atmosphere throughout.
As well as 5 teams from our club we had teams from Borden, Fareham, Cobbetts and Southsea. As this is another one of our competitions that we expect to make money from for club expenses, income was quite good. In future we must look at ways of increasing uptake by other clubs. Nobody else runs this type of competition where the objective is to give "up and coming" players the chance to compete against others of their stature. I gather that there were several other competitions going on over the weekend as well as quite a few of our regulars from other clubs away on holiday.
In the event, there were no teams that won all 5 games and only one that won 4. Positions were:
1st Mike Powlesland and Phil Searle
2nd Nick and Wendy Hall and
3rd Andy Walker and Dawn Latimer
Tom Cole Trophy
This competition is now scheduled for 12th. August
