Great start to Cornwall season

Twelve pairs turned out for the beginning of season open Easter Egg Shoot event at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 12 April, with a good mix of familiar faces and new and returning players.

Overall winners were Pete PD Downing (North Inn PC) and Mark Hypponen (Tregony PC), who beat Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn) and Graeme Kirkham (Tregony) 13-9 in the final of the Main competition. 

The other semi-finalists were Drew Jarvis (Vogue PC) and Pete Lynas (Tregony), who lost to PD and Mark, and Kevin Conac and Rob Strickland of St Austell, both new to Cornwall petanque competitions, who, after a good run of results in the event, lost to Boot and Graeme. A decider gave third place in the competition to Drew and Pete.

The Plate competition was won by Rob Sullivan and Dion Beechey of Coaching Inn PC, who beat Andy and Enid Rose of Stenalees to take the top place. 

The Kernow Petnque summer league begins on 26 April, with the first round matches taking place at the Star Inn, Vogue. The Regional Doubles competition is at the Star on 3 May. For more information contact Kernow Petanque Playing Officer Drew Jarvis via the Contact Us page.


Cornwall winter league finals - results

The final round of the Cornwall winter league doubles competition saw no change in the top three. In first place, as they have been since the first round, were Ray Beresford (North Inn PC) and Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC). Second were Susan Williamson and Graeme Kirkham (Tregony PC) and third Terry Jones and Roy Pemberton of the new Coaching Inn PC.

The competition was played at the Star Inn, St Day. The day started wet and got wetter until just about the time the last games were being played, when the sun came out and everything was lovely!

As last year, Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn) and Rob Sullivan (Coaching Inn) made a late surge, ending in fourth place, leading from Rod Walker (Vogue) and Gordon Couch (Rising Sun PC) and Arnaud Ruetsch and Richard Lapworth (both North Inn) in equal fifth place.

New Tregony PC players Sue Hardy and Mark Hypponen took seventh place.

Petanque in the sun

After a very cold start, winter sunshine on Sunday 8 February warmed to the point where some players in the winter league round held at the Star, St Day, were spotted in shirtsleeves! Cornwall in February - balmy! 

The top of the table didn't change but any of the three leading teams could now in theory take first place after the four games in next month's final round. 

Still in the lead are Ray Beresford (North Inn PC) and Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC) with 16 wins and a points difference of +69. Close behind them, with 15 wins and +82 are Graeme Kirkham and Susan Williamson (Tregony PC).

Still in third place are Terry Jones and Roy Pemberton (Coaching Inn), with 13 wins (+25).

Behind them are two teams on nine wins: Richard Lapworth and Arnaud Ruetsch (North Inn PC) have a points difference of -20, putting them just behind Rod Walker (Vogue PC) and Gordon Couch (Rising Sun PC) with a difference of -19.

Two teams are on seven wins: Sue Hardy and Mark Hypponen (Tregony PC) have a points difference of +5, putting them just ahead of Rob Sullivan (Coaching Inn) and Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn) on -4, 

The final round of the competition will take place at the Star on Sunday 8 March.
