A lot has been happening in the club, so this is a catch up for June & July. The Singles and Doubles matches were played on the last Wednesday of the month (Wednesdays are clubnights). We have not been rained off (yet) but it has been very windy!
June: TVPA Memorial Salver (played in memory of those who are no longer with us) – which Petanque Wallingford hosted:
PW did pretty well again
This was won by 3 PW Members - Mark Dowman, Richard Doughty and Steve Gothard; Moiya, Ron and Aaron came second, and Wendy, Paul and Gussy came third.
June: Singles Dotty Cup – Won by Mark Dowman
July: Doubles Dotty Cups – Won by Wendy Harris and Peter Smith
Several matches still to come: Select Pairs in mid-August, our Open in late August, The Triples at the end of August, and our Memorial Trophy will be played for in October.
Meanwhile the Midweek Leagues and Sunday Leagues (Red Kites and Red Herrings), continue and various Thames Valley Clubs are holding Opens Days (Arborfield is on the 6th August). So still plenty to do and much fun to be had. If anyone wants more information, look at our notice board, or ask Loren or Thérèse.
And finally, on Sunday 30th July 2017 the Thames Valley Petanque Association held the Regional Singles and Shooting Competition. This was won by our member Mark Dowman – well done Mark!
