It was a glorious sunny day for petanque and the championships were played in a keen but friendly spirit. Was great to see some new faces taking part in our championships this time too!
The Sussex 2016 Mixed Doubles Champions are Jane Pope and Jeff Mitchell who beat Lynette Carey and Tony Mann 13 -7 in the final.
Some special mentions are required to the following :-
1) Jane Pope who pointed sensationally in the final
2) young Ella Slade who pointed to a high standard in all of her games and showed great composure for someone so young
3) Andy Carey, who not only loaned me his Mrs for the day but helped with all the paperwork too
4) Morgan Pry who though he wasn't playing took time out to coach young Charlie Shrimpton today and then young Charlie went on to coach his even younger sister (fabulous to watch!)
Thanks to everyone who participated and to everyone that came and watched......
