Thirty-four teams came together on a blustery winter’s day for Worthing Petanque Club’s annual Charity Triples competition, this year supporting Macmillan Cancer Care. Teams came from all around the Southern Region and beyond, and were joined by (most of) the winning team from last year’s Eurocup.
The final game of the morning went on until 2.30pm, making a late start inevitable in the afternoon. However, limiting each of the knockout groups to eight teams kept the afternoon reasonably short.
In a very strong field, the Cobbetts team of Mike, Ali and Jay were outstanding and beat Jamie, Callum and Baz Wing in the final.
