2 (Home) Vs 4 (Away) Venue Tregony 10/5/2022

Tregony home team Trinity beat the visiting Incrediboules 2 – 1. First the triples match was played, and in it the home team (Peter & Nicky Tombs) won by clear difference, 13-4, the visitors (Liz Shailes, Ceri Davies & Mark Hypponen). Second match was the captains’ singles. Pete turned out to be in much better form than Mark, and gathered the same numbers as in the previous game, 13-4.The doubles were left third and last, and in that visiting Incrediboules’s Liz and Ceri took the victory by 13-10 with one nearly incredible 6-0 end in the game. The weather was ok with some sunshine, some clouds and some light wind. The terrain was challenging with its hard and softer bits and pieces of sharp-edged gravel, like it should be in modern petanque.

It was a close game and ended in a 13 – 10 win for Chris. In the Doubles, Nicky & Pete T faced Pete E & Drew. The Away team showed they were still on form and despite a couple of good ends, it ended in a 9 – 13 to the visitors.

Round 2

4 (Home) Vs 2 (Away) Venue: North Inn, Pendeen (1/7/2022)

Due to unforseen circumstances both teams could only field a team of 2 players. We therefore decided that we would play 3 games of doubles. After a long and frustrating journey of road closures and diversions, the visitors (Chris & Pippa) started off well and were looking strong as the first game commenced. However, the Incrediboules (Mark & Liz) made an impressive comeback and managed to take the game 13 -12. In the second game both the weather and Trinity warmed up and victory was theirs 7 – 13. The third and final game, as the piste dryed out and began to play less predictably, Trinity couldn’t retain the upperhand and victory went to the home team 13 – 9.

1 (Home) Vs 2 (Away) Venue: Clay Trail, Bugle (12/7/2022)

Andy and Paul had “stringed” an area to provide a suitable piste for the games. The firts game played was the doubles which started with neither side showing a clear advantage as the scores were level at 5 all and then 7 all followed by 8 all! The home team then started to edge ahead and secured a 13 – 9 victory. Next came the singles. Andy soon took the lead and Chris failed to gain points. A good victory for Andy 13 – 4. The Trebles were last. Andy & Paul were allowed to play with 3 boules each. (With hindsight perhaps a mistake?!) With Trinity with 2 boules each couldn’t gain the upperhand and were defeated 13 – 5. A clean sweep for the home team!
