In the blazing heat on Sunday 21 July, eight teams turned out for the Sussex Pétanque region (SXP) Triples Championship held this year at our home terrain. Two of four teams from the club made the final: Alvis – David and Stephan Alfred and Gareth Jarvis – having overcome the two teams who had beaten them in the morning league, and The Railway Children – Di and Mark Cherrie and Gaby Channing – who won their quarter- and semi-final games after being well behind in both. The final result was a win for Alvis by 13-5. Well done to all concerned: the finalists, all the competitors and all who prepared the terrain and hosted the competition.
Alvis and The Railway Children will thus represent the region in the Champion of Champions Championship to be held in September. Stephan will also represent the region in the shooting competition. We wish them the best of luck.
There will be more details of yesterday’s competition in the next newsletter.
