Mark, Sue and Andrew take triples trophy

New holders of the Kernow Petanque Triples title are Mark Hypponen and Sue Hardy, both of North Inn PC, Pendeen, and Andrew Jarvis of Vogue PC.

Playing on a day of less than ideal petanque weather - the drizzle hardly let up throughout the competition - Mark, Sue and Andrew took the trophy with 3 wins from the four games played. A points difference of +16 put them just ahead of runners-up Colin 'Boot' Booth, Pete 'PD' Downing and Graeme Kirkham, also on three wins but with a points difference of +14.

A disappointing turnout of only five teams took part in the event, held on Sunday 26 August at the Star Inn, St Day. Fingers crossed for better weather for the pre-Hayling session planned for 9 September.
