Handcross Charity Doubles

Les Bonnes Boules de Handcross welcomed 18 teams to contest their annual charity doubles competition on 3rd June. The chosen charity this year was SHOOTING STAR CHASE CHILDRENS HOSPICE, which will receive a donation of £330.

A clash with other competitions on the same day meant that the turnout was below the usual 24 teams this year, so due to the low numbers it was decided to play a snake. Not everyone’s favourite format but at least it guaranteed 5 games, with Jane and Nigel standing down to avoid any byes.

Matching the competition, the weather started hot and got hotter and sunnier through the day. Lee and Angie Jamieson must have arrived needing a rest as they conserved their energy romping through their 5 matches only conceding 5 points all day.

Jamie and Steve put up a great fight winning all of their matches but playing with a friendlier attitude and letting their opponents have a few points.

The biggest surprise was the first fanny going to Christine and Frank, I don’t imagine they have many of those on their CV.
