Portchester Pétanque Club
39 ladies representing 14 SCPA clubs who travelled to Adur PC to take part in our 5th Annual IWD Women’s Doubles on Sunday 13th March 2022. A wetter than expected morning saw the teams battle it out in the leagues. The rain petered out before the afternoon knockouts as the timed games worked a treat for a 4.30pm finish.
Portchester's own Trudy Bishop and Wendy Hall won Gold Consolage and now have the opportunity to represent Southern Counties at the Regional event Ladies Doubles event later on in the year!
Games were timed to 50 minutes. Trudy and Wendy won 3 games in the morning, 13-0, 13-4 and 13-4 which took them through to the afternoon sessions. At this stage they were top of the leaderboard. Sadly their first game of the afternoon was a bit of ‘After the Lord Mayor’s Show’. They lost 13-1 to the team who went on to play in the final, which reduced the aggregate from +31 to +19. The next game was a win of 13-4 and the final game a win of 12-11.
We hope to see more Portchester representation from our club members next year.
Thank you to Adur PC and all the fantastic volunteers who helped throughout the day and to the wonderful teams for creating such a fun and friendly competition in celebration of International Women’s Day.
