Triples title gives Simon three in a row

Triples winners - Hugh, Simon and PaulFalmouth-resident Simon Penna and partners Paul Lancaster and Hugh Appleton took the Kernow P├ętanque 2012 triples title at the Star Inn, St Day, on 10 June. Simon adds the title to those for the Singles and Doubles events which he won earlier this season.

The final saw Simon, Paul and Hugh win 13-7 against a team made up of Robert Herrick of the Rising Sun Petanque Club, Altarnun, and Dave Piggin and Graeme Kirkham of Tregony PC. In the semi-finals the latter won very narrowly 13-12 against Colin 'Boot' Booth, Ray Beresford and Pete 'PD' Downing of the North Inn PC at Pendeen. In the other semi-final Simon, Paul and Hugh beat Barbara Brown, Lena Daddow and Pete Lynas 13-9.

A playoff between the semi-finals runners-up gave third place in the event to the North Inn team. The Plate was won by Wendy Booker, Peter Gliddon and Kate Herrick (Rising Sun PC). Only seven teams took part in this year's competition, continuing a trend of disappointing support for regional events.
