The Sussex Pétanque (SXP) Doubles and Shooting Championships were held yesterday chez Goldsmith PC in Crowborough. The top two in each category (plus the Triples top two) will represent the region at the Champion of Champions Championship later in the year. (A lot of champions, etc, round here.)
Although all qualifying for the Main event (best 8 teams out of the 11 who turned out) none of our formations – Gareth/Tony/(last year’s champions), Ian/Rohan, David A/Stephan – made the final (David and Stephan narrowly lost their semi-final).
However, Stephan redeemed the club’s reputation by coming second, for the third year running, in the shooting competition which is organised according to the official international format. Round of applause for Stephan (and one thumb up to his dad who came third).
More details in the next newsletter.
