On Saturday 9th June Southsea Petanque Club’s terrain hosted the annual region-wide SCPA Adult/Junior competition. The entry was disappointingly low at 5 teams, however the grapevine suggested the presence of the English Junior singles champion and three others from the English junior A squad had scared off some possible opposition.
Being low entry the competition was run as a round robin. Unfortunately, the odd number of entrants meant a bye in each round. Luckily, there were enough Southsea club spectators willing to step in and provide practice opposition so there was no sitting around if it wasn’t wanted.
The way the round robin worked out meant that in the end the two top pairs played each other in the last round giving what was in effect a final.
Congratulations to Jamie Brooks(Jnr) and adult partner Glen Floyd who overcame Liam Floyd(Jnr) and adult partner David Franco Cruz in the last game to win the competition.
