The Waverly Vintners Pairs was held on Perth Petanque Club’s piste at the North Inch Perth on a not unpleasant late summer’s day.
Ten eager Perth club members had turned up by 9.30 and were hopeful that some visitors would roll up before 10 o’clock. But nary a one – not even that grand supporter of club events Mr Twechar John.
The Waverly Vintners was originally a closed competition – Perth Petanque club’s doubles trophy – so back to the past for the WV 2009!
So with five teams, a leisurely four game round robin was enjoyed by the Perth club members and the outcome went to the last round with Steve and Douglas getting the better of Alice and Ed.
