Coaching Inn ahead after round 2 of summer league

With another big win in their round 2 game Coaching Inn PC currently holds the top spot in the Cornwall summer league.

Playing at home to the visiting North Inn squad, Coaching Inn's Dion Beechey, Roy Pemberton and Rob Sullivan took the first of three timed games 12-7, against North Inn's Bill Kingdon, Colin 'Boot' Booth and Mark Hypponen.

The home side took the second game 8-3, facing Bill, Mark and Dominik Ellwanger, with the third - Tim Coad stepping in in place of Dion - also going to the Coaching Inn with a score of 12-5, this time against Boot, Mark and Dominik.

After two rounds of the league the Coaching Inn is unbeaten with six wins and a points difference of +31. Tregony is in second place with 4 wins (+19), followed by Vogue on 2 wins (-17) and North Inn, yet to score (-33).

In June Coaching Inn is at home to Tregony and North Inn will host the game against Vogue.


Successful petanque event at Tregony Sports Club

More than 25 people turned out for an informal evening of petanque at Tregony Sports Club on Thursday 25 May.

The players included members of Tregony PC, who play at the Club on Tuesday evenings, the St Austell U3A petanque group, who use the terrain on Saturdays, and two teams of Sports Club regulars, some of whom were trying the game for the first time.

Overall, a very good event, rounded off by a very fine chicken curry, thanks to Sports Club steward Phil Higham.

Lena and Paul take doubles trophy

Winners of the 2018 Kernow regional doubles event, held on Sunday 20 May at the Star Inn, St Day, were Lena Daddow and Paul Lumley, both members of Vogue PC. They won all four of their games.

Second place went to Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn PC) and Graeme Kirkham (Tregony), with two more Tregony players, Paul Rundle and Pete Lynas, taking third.

Turnout for the competition was disappointingly poor, with only five pairs competing in the first major event of the Cornwall calendar.
