Park Petanque Club Open Draw Tournament
09 August 2014
On 09th August 2014, Park Petanque Club organised its Open Draw tournament.
14 players registered for the tournament and the format of the games was decided as follows:
There would be 4 double teams and 2 triple teams. In the interest of fairness, winners would play with losers against same strength opponents based on a ranking done on each round.
Richard, our Club President attended the event and organised and ran the event smoothly.
Play started at 11.30 am, and 2 rounds were played until lunch. Play resumed at 2.30 pm for another 3 rounds and the final game finished at 5.15pm.
The final standings:
Congratulations to Norman who came first with a win in all of his games. Unfortunately he was called away before he could be presented with his trophy.
However, we did manage to find him a week later! The lure of more petanque was too good for our champion to pass up.
Special Congratulations to Katherine and Tom who did superbly to come 2nd and 3rd (after Richard kindly vacated 3rd position due to "unfair advantage".
Another special thank you to Davina who soldiered on and did not let her teams down despite struggling with a back injury. Thank you Davina.
