Cornwall doubles 2014 - results

The final of this year's Cornwall regional doubles competition was an all Tregony Petanque Club event, with Pete Lynas and Paul Rundle playing Susan Williamson and Graeme Kirkham. Susan and Graeme cruised to an 11-2 lead and then . . . lost the plot (!), with Pete and Paul sharpening their pointing to come out winners 13-11.

In the semi-finals Pete and Paul beat Roy Pemberton and Terry Jones of the Treleigh Arms Petanque Society (TAPS) 13-9; Colin 'Boot' Booth and Barney Knapp of the North Inn PC, Pendeen, lost 13-8 to Susan and Graeme.

The Plate competition was won by Simon Penna and Rob Sullivan (TAPS), who beat Gordon Couch (Rising Sun PC) and Rod Walker (Vogue PC).

Only nine teams took part in the event, played at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 18 May, a very disappointing turnout for a regional competition.

Sam is now undertaking a challenge to try 100 different sports in the course of a year, chronicling the results in a blog - petanque was no 6 on her list. Her blog account is at

Thanks  to Sam from Tregony PC for coming to see us - good luck with the 94 sports to go!
