THE NEWSLETTER OF NORWICH PĖTANQUE CLUB
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 2016
This takes place on Saturday 14th May, registration from 1pm. The Championship differs from our Singles competition, as ladies and gents compete on an equal basis over 4 timed melee games to provide our overall Club Champion. Enzo Diprata will be defending his title for the 2nd year running so come along and challenge Enzo for the title this year.
All competitors should now have their Scorecards for their Groups in this event. Group games can be played at any time, on any date, with completed cards to be returned to the Secretary by 30th June.
We have now started our Summer Melee on Wednesday Clubnights. The first results will be published as soon as some players have completed the 6 games minimum required to qualify.
Our occasional Money Melee proved quite popular over the winter, so we have decided to run two Money Melee events on Clubnights this summer in place of our routine Summer Melee games. These will be held in the Bank holiday weeks at the end of May (Wednesday 1st June) and the end of August (Wednesday 31st August).
We play two melee games, so registration will be from 7pm for a 7.30pm start . Entry is £2 per person, with the winner taking half of the pot, 2nd place player taking a quarter of the pot.
The Big C Charity Pairs took place in less than ideal conditions this year, with pouring rain all afternoon, so we were very pleased that 12 pairs turned up in such conditions to compete this event.
Congratulations to all who who turned up for this event and contributed to the £150 raised for this good
cause and thanks as always to Len Ellis who as usual made sure that everything ran smoothly.
Winners Chris Cunningham & Niall Warn
Runners up Derek Shoesmith & Richard Green
