Seven teams – including David A with Janice, and Tony teaming up with Jane (Crowborough SC) – turned out at Crowborough Social Club yesterday for this event. As last year, David and Janice won all their games in the ‘league of death’ – including that against Jeff and Christine who beat them in last year’s final – and were seeded second for the afternoon rolling knock-out.
Having won their quarter- and semi-final games, David and Janice faced in the final Alan and Dawn Constable (President and Secretary of Sussex Pétanque) who had also won their morning league and were seeded first. Unfortunately, with a slight lapse of form, David and Janice lost 5-13. Looking on the bright side, coming runners-up two years running is a creditable achievement – well done the both of them!
NB Our club will be hosting the last of the SXP Championships this year, the Singles Championship on Sunday 7 September. As with all these events, all SXP members are eligible to enter.
