“A group of Petanque players from the Mercia Region spent an enjoyable week at Sand Bay Holiday Village, Weston-super-mare and took part in the Isle of Wight Tours Great Petanque Event. Superbly organised by Alan Whitehouse, the event saw our members take part in a Triples Competition and a Triples Melee.
In the main event Nick North, John Proctor and Thakor Mistry were runners up. Mike Ricketts, June Ricketts, Denise Proctor, Maureen Mountain and Madhu Mistry were all loosing semi-finalists. Linda Edwards, Alison Baker and Colin Baker won the plate trophy.
In the Melee Mike and June Ricketts fought out a pulsating dual in opposite teams in the main final, Mike coming out the victor. John Proctor and his team beat Nick North ‘s team to win the plate and Thakor Mistry’s team won the wooden spoon trophy.
Everyone enjoyed the event and came home laden with trophies and wine!”
