Congratulations to Carla & Tim Jervis from Chesterfield Petanque Club, who won the Nottingham Open Doubles Tournament at the weekend. Carla & Tim were unbeaten on the day winning all six games.

The morning’s leagues determined who would be in the gold, silver and bronze leagues in the afternoon, and after three more challenging rounds the winning teams were named with Carla & Tim being crowned champions. Congratulations to the top two teams from the gold, silver and bronze leagues who all won cash prizes.

A squad from the Suffolk Coastal Pétanque League will be visiting Nottingham City PC on Saturday, 18th June for a challenge match. Steve Harrington made contact with Simon Fletcher, the organiser for the league when he and Di were visiting Suffolk last year and watched the final of one of SCPL’s competitions. Steve is delighted that Simon will be bringing a squad of Suffolk coastal league players to Nottingham and is looking forward to a great day of friendly competition. It is Steve’s intention to invite players from some of the Mercia region’s clubs to participate in this event.
