Pierre Bretenoux

It is with a great deal of shock and sadness that we pay tribute to Pierre Bretenoux who passed away suddenly on Friday.

Pierre was a Life Member of the SPA and, during his competitive days, won the Scottish Triples and Grand Prix Series both on five occasions, as well as a Scottish Doubles title. He represented Scotland on numerous occasions in the annual matches against the British Pétanque Association and the Celtic Challenge.

While he stopped playing competitively some time ago, latterly he would often visit us at competitions to cheer on his son Paul and say hello to us all.

Our thoughts are with his wife Carol, Paul and Cheryl and all his friends at the Birds and Bees at this very sad time.
