Alfred/Alfred/Jarvis SXP Triples Champions – Again

Seven teams turned out on a lovely warm and sunny yesterday at Goldsmith PC’s terrain in Crowborough for Sussex Pétanque’s Triples Championship. The top two teams from two leagues of three and four teams would go straight into the Main semi-finals while the other three teams would battle it out for the Plate.

Both teams with our club members – David A, Stephan and Gareth (Alvis); Tony with Jeff Mitchell and Herbie Edwards (both Goldsmith PC) – were drawn in the league of 3 and both qualified for the Main with Alvis coming first. They then went on to win their respective semi-finals and so met again in the final. Unlike their morning game (13-1), this was a titanic struggle lasting over two hours in gruelling heat, David, Gareth and Stephan winning 13-10, thus becoming SXP Triples Champions. Well done, boys!

Alvis, current No. 1 seed in the SXP Inter-Regional Championship squad, also won this event two years ago. They and Tony’s team will represent Sussex Pétanque (SXP) in the inter-regional Champion of Champions Championship later in the year. Hearty congratulations and the best of luck to both teams.
