Yes We Can! Sussex Petanque Promoted to Inter-Regional Championship Division 1

As the weather was glorious at Hayling Island last weekend, so was the performance of the SXP squad at the Inter-Regional Championship. The squad – including club members David A, Gareth J, Ian M, Stephan A and Tony M- came second winning 51 games, just 2 games behind the champion region and a full 9 games ahead of the third-place region, and were thus promoted to Division I.

Established in 2007 and the youngest of the 15 regions in England, this was SXP’s seventh year in Division 2 of the Championship (with six regions represented). Next year SXP will face its severest challenge yet, playing against the top eight regions in Division 1.
