National Doubles Competition

 

13 September 2014

 

Bushy Park Terenure, Dublin 6

The Annual IPA doubles competition was held in Bushy Park, Terenure, Dublin 6 on Saturday 13th September 2014.

 

It was a glorious morning and a warm day for a mid-September tournament. The weather was sunny and allowed for a great day of competition. This was in a friendly but competitive setting and ended at 17 30 with a thrilling final. The ground was very dry which led to some interesting bounces during the day, as it had not rained in Bushy Park for over a week.

 

There were 10 teams competing for the title.

 

North Down Teams:

 

1. Humberto Tavares / George Davidson

2. John Hennessy / Gary Colhoun

 

Frankfield Petanque Club, Cork Teams:

 

1. Junette Kennedy / Jim Ryan

2. Martin Ryan / Pat Kennedy

 

Park Petanque Club, Dublin Teams:

 

1. Daniel Tiedemann / Laetitia Hyver

2. Naazim Mohungoo / Farzana Maudarbaccus

3. Brian Kavanagh / Kathleen Fay

4. Michael Dolan / Norman Flanagan

5. Kevin Kavanagh / Tom Gormley

 

Unattached Team:

 

Sylver / Gilles Breteche

The format of the competition was:

 

10 teams were divided into 2 groups, A and B. Each team will play all the other teams in its own group. As the IPA rules state that teams must play 6 games and a subsequent final, it was decided that each team would then play its corresponding same numbered team in the opposite group, followed by another team that was randomly decided prior to the competition based on the team name/number.

 

Players picked a team number at random and this was the group lineup:

3 games were played before lunch and a good break was needed. at that time (group A was still being hotly contested), these were the standings

Play resumed at 1400 and another 3 games were played, with some post-lunch sluggishness. Although naps were not allowed, they were being asked for. Hopefully there will be a time when the organisers may be able to provide cots, who knows?

 

In any case, following an intense afternoon, this was the final standing.
