Cornwall Singles

Winner of the 2014 Cornwall Singles title is Roy Pemberton, of the Treleigh Arms Petanque Society (TAPS). This puts a new name on the trophy and breaks a run of repeated wins: Simon Penna of TAPS won in 2012 and 2013 and for three years before that the title was held by Steven Boyne.

Sixteen players took part in the competition, held at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 1 June. The numbers meant that the rough and sloping 'outside' piste, next to the car park had to be used, which some players used to advantage and others found challenging.

After a league in the morning, the first round of the afternoon knockout games saw defeats for both the previous title holders, Steven Boyne losing to Roy Pemberton and Simon Penna to Kernow Playing Officer Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC).

The semi-finalists were Pete 'PD' Downing (North Inn PC) and Roy, the latter winning 13-8, and Andrew and Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn PC), with Andrew winning this game 13-10. The final between Roy And Andrew - played on the outside piste - went to 13-6.

A playoff for third place was an all North Inn affair between PD and Boot, with Boot winning narrowly 13-11.

The plate competition was won by another North Inn player, Barney Knapp, with a 13-9 win against Rob Sullivan of TAPS.
