Winter doubles and Kernow AGM

The final event in the winter doubles series will take place at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 4 March. Registration 10.30-10.45 for 11.00 start of play.

The event is open to all - everyone welcome.

This will be followed at about 15.00 by the Kernow Petanque Annual General Meeting. Details of this have been sent to all current members by email or by post. The agenda and other information will go out shortly.

This is an important meeting: our President, Pete Lynas, has indicated that he will be standing down and it would be good to have as many members as possible there to elect a new President. All other officer posts are also open to nominations.

Details of the officer posts and the nomination process were in the recent email / letter from the Secretary. Any items you would like to be discussed at the meeting should be notified to the Secretary by next Saturday, 24 February.

Please note: only paid-up members of Kernow Petanque will be able to vote or be nominated as officers. If possible, please renew your membership online before the meeting:…

If you wish to transfer between clubs please contact the Kernow Membership Secretary before renewing.

If you don't want to renew online you will be able pay the current year's subscription (£27) prior to the meeting.


Winter boules

At least eight people have said they will play at Swanpool tomorrow (Sunday 4 February), which gives us three games. If more than eight turn up, but fewer than 12, we can make up some triples to avoid byes or anyone sitting out.

However, the Met Office forecast for Falmouth tomorrow is for a feels-like temperature of 0 degrees at 11.00! Sunny intervals but a gusty north-east wind. Is everyone still keen? Please email Graeme - see contact us page for email address - if you are not going to come - it's a long way for people to go if we are not going to be able to get the three games planned.


Boules in Penzance

Eight players turned out for the 14 January leg of the winter boules safari, held in the fine setting of St Anthony's Gardens, Penzance: palm trees, a fountain and Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount in the background.

The surface was . . . challenging. Thin gravel over very uneven tarmac with plenty of biggish stones coming through, lightly topped with patches of grass and weeds and liberally sprinkled with quantities of dog mess of varying freshness.

After three timed games two pairs had two wins and a points difference of +4. Mark Hypponen and Roy Pemberton just took the top spot, because they beat Arnaud Ruetsch and Richard Lapworth when the two teams played each other in the first round.

Also making an appearance, though not in the results table, were Andrew Jarvis and Graeme Kirkham, and Pete English and Andy Rose.


To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go . . . .

Weather and numbers permitting, the next outing in the winter doubles series will take place next Sunday, 4 Febuary, at Swanpool car park, Falmouth.

We plan on three games. Registration 10.45 - start of play 11.00. Open to all - all welcome.

To be sure that there will be enough players to make it a worthwhile event (minimum four pairs), please email Graeme - see contact us page for email address - to confirm you will be there. The forecast isn't great for later in the week so, as before, we'll post here and on Facebook and email a final on/off decision on Saturday.


Thunderboules are go!

Looks like we have enough players for the doubles session at St Anthony's Gardens, Penzance, tomorrow (Sunday 14 January), and the Met Office forecast is good. 

Registration 10.45 - start of play at 11.00. Three timed games. All welcome. See you there.
