North v South Result – South Win


Once again the traditional season opener between the North & the South proved popular, despite the weather forecast with 55 players registering for the competition at Perth PC on 6th April.  The players were divided into 10 teams on each side and 5 rounds were played.  The results were as follows:

Round 1 – South 5 – North 5 (5-5)

Round 2 – South 4 – North 6 (9-11)

Round 3 – South 7 – North 3 (16-14)

Round 4 – South 6 – North 4 (22-18)

Round 5 – South 4 – North 6 (26-24)

So, in the end a narrow win for the South.  Particular mention goes to Paul Bretenoux and Stephane Maurage who were the only team to remain undefeated.

The next SPA event is Grand Prix 1 on Sunday 27th April at Fochabers PC (registration 9.00 – 9.15 sharp for 9.30 start).

Men’s World Singles


Robbie Stronach represented Scotland at the first Men’s World Singles in Nice at the weekend.

Despite losing his first game in the 5 round Swiss on day 1, Robbie rallied winning 3 of the remaining 4 games to secure a place in the last 16 to be played on day 2.

Robbie was drawn against a strong Tunisian and lost (his opponent ultimately reached the Semi Finals). However Robbie certainly put Scottish petanque in the limelight and did us all proud.

Well done lad!

Club Invitation to Host 2014 Events


It is that time of year again when we’d like to hear from clubs interested in hosting 2014 SPA competitions. The draft calendar has been added to the Calendar on this site (click here).  All dates and venues are TBC.

To host an SPA event a club would require 8 pistes. We’d also like the host clubs to have someone available to help with registration etc..

Could interested clubs let me know the SPA events they’d like to be considered for and also the dates of club competitions they’d like included.

We’d appreciate it if you could feed information through as soon as you can.

We hope to have a reasonably complete calendar in place by our next NEC meeting, 26.01.14.

Can you also keep us updated with any changes that may be necessary to your club details as seen on the website?

Kind regards ….Lynn

Lynn Jenkins

SPA Secretary
