Congratulations to Tweed Valley PC from all at the SPA.
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).
Fochabers PC have produced the itinerary for the Celtic Challenge, you can view it here.
The competition rules for 2014 are now available and can be viewed here
All players please note: for forthcoming North v South competition (6th April – Perth Petanque Club) registration will be from 9.45 – 10.15 am with a 10.30 start. Perth PC will make Breakfast and Lunch available for purchase.
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!
The SPA are delighted to confirm that Scotland will be represented by Christine Thomson, Douglas Hamilton and Ed Strachan at the 2014 European Veteran’s Competition in Lulea, Sweden, in June.
