Stephen Snudden has placed the following link on the EPA Facebook Group. Follow the link at the bottom of Stephen’s article to see day one fixtures for the Inter Regional Championships at Hayling Island.
With just under 11 weeks to go, this years Inter Regional’s draw has now been posted to the EPA Website. (Subject to confirmation of entrants, promotion/relegation)
The summary tables are replicas of those that will be on display in the control room with the addition of links to each days order of play.
When results are refreshed in the control room they will also get updated on the EPA website. Those players unable to make the weekend will therefore be able to keep up to date with the state of play.
As for last year the Junior Precision Shooting will take place on Saturday afternoon.
Refresh/Upload of the state of play will stop 2 rounds before the end of play on the Sunday. This is intentional so as to keep people guessing as to final positions, top teams etc.
“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!”

The first round of the Sherwood Shield combined with ‘The Great Get Together’ took place in Titchfield Park, Mansfield on Sunday June 18th. The Sherwood Shield competition is held every year between Mercia’s clubs and uses a round robin format to establish the winning club. Players from Fernwood, Chesterfield, Nottingham, Burton Joyce, Worksop and Mansfield gathered together for a day of fun & friendly competition on one of the year’s hottest days. The event coincided with the anniversary of MP Jo Cox’s death and as the Sherwood Shield competition was originally devised to offer the hand of friendship to our neighbouring clubs, we felt that our event epitomised the sense of community spirit that Jo Cox always tried to promote. The ‘Great Get Together’ theme was gingham and all 45 players, helpers and spectators arrived clad in checks, stripes and spots together with pink gingham roses, ribbons and bows. Matches were keenly contested with Chesterfield coming out on top in round one.
