Eurocup Semi Final report from Zena Forbes
A creditable performance for Nottingham against some top-class opposition
We went, we saw ….. we didn’t quite conquer (apart from some nerves perhaps) but we put on a good show, playing competitively, with good humour and sportsmanship.
We didn’t win any of the three pool matches, though managed 12 wins out of the 33 games, scoring 29 match points out of a possible 93, against some very strong teams of experienced players – including a good number of top English International and Regional players.
A good experience overall which gives us some clear, positive targets for future development.
Credit and thanks also to other squad members who played in previous qualifying rounds and aided us into the semi-finals.

Well done to both NCPC and Arena PC on your achievements.
The ten clubs participating in this year’s winter league gave us another great day’s Petanque at Nottingham City PC, our thanks goes to all those who played today.
Our thanks to NCPC for hosting the 2nd round today and to all the volunteers who prepared the venue for the day’s play and to those who helped with refreshments. Our thanks also to John Proctor who was Mercia’s competition organiser for this round.
The Mercia Winter League got under way today on a bright, but cool day at Titchfield Park, Mansfield. A record ten clubs are competing for the winter league title this year, with a good number of the clubs bringing a mix of both established players and newer members who were playing in the Mercia Winter League for the first time. It was great to see so many new faces and we hope they all enjoyed the day.
Our thanks goes to Mansfield PC for hosting this 1st round of the winter league and to all the volunteers who prepared the pistes for the day’s play and kept the refreshments flowing. Our thanks also to John Proctor who was competition organiser for this event.
