This years SCPA Regional Doubles were held at Adur Pétanque Club on 4th September.
A lot of the squad heading to the Inter Regionals were in attendance as they sharpened their skills ready for the showpiece event.
The day started with morning leagues, randomly drawn. This set up some interesting ties amongst the groups and even more interesting knock out matches.
Our Regional Doubles Champions, and representing the Southern Counties at the Champion of Champions was Marc Franco Llado & David Plumhoff of River Hamble; the duo proved a formidable presence for all who they faced. The pairing beat fellow River Hamble players, Sammy Ogles & Steve Lombard, 13-7 in the Final. Sammy & Steve will also take on the best of each Region at the Champion of Champions at Whitnash Pétanque Club in October.
Another well run and presented event from SCPA and Hilary Kidd; thanks to Adur for their hospitality – especially the lovely burgers!
