The day dawned clear and bright for our annual 'play and lunch'. Thirtyfour people came along. We played for 2 hours, then everyone adjourned to the Pavilion for lunch - a lovely fish pie with mixed vegetables, followed by 4 glorious puddings for us to choose from. Val and Pat made the pies for us and Julie, Carol, Bridget and Louise made the puddings. We also held our own mini presentation and caught up with Paul Hammond who had won the Memorial Trophy in September. Thank you everyone for coming.
Saturday 16 November saw us at the Holiday Inn in High Wycombe for the annual TVPA Presentation Dinner. The food was not up to much, but we put a brave face on and enjoyed ourselves anyway. Shown below are the awards made to Petanque Wallingford members:

There was no TVPA Sunday League this year, instead the Sunday League was held under the sponsorship of MSB Electrics and the cup was won by PW team Red Kites - reported earlier in the year. Here is a picture of some of the team members.
Well done all, lets hope next year sees PW win lots more!!
I still want to remain anonymous for now but I am an even smarter mouse ... and I love to play petanque ......
