Summer league 2015 - round 1

The Kernow Petanque summer league competition kicked off on Sunday 26 April with the teams entered all meeting at the Star Inn, St Day, for the first round. A turnout of seven teams meant there had to be a bye but six teams then played the usual format of two triples games, doubles and singles.

The most successful team was Tregony PC's Susan Williamson, Mark Hypponen and Graeme Kirkham (fourth member Sue Hardy is recovering from pneumonia). They played Robert and Kate Herrick (Rising Sun PC) and Paul Rundle (Tregony PC) and marked up four wins, with Mark taking the singles 13-3 against Robert.

In second place were Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC) with Roy Pemberton and Terry Jones of Coaching Inn PC. They played the North Inn PC's Ray Beresford, Pete PD Downing and Colin 'Boot' Booth and won both the triples games, with Ray and PD winning the doubles and Boot coming out 13-10 in the singles against Andrew.

Lena Daddow (Vogue PC) with Barbara Brown and Pete Lynas (both Tregony PC) had a roller-coaster in four games against Rod Walker (Vogue), Richard Lapworth (North Inn) and Gordon Couch (Rising Sun). They won the first triples 13-7, lost the second 2-13, took the doubles 13-0 and lost the singles 9-13. Points difference gave them the edge for third place.

Current ranking is (1) Susan, Mark, Graeme and Sue, (2) Andrew, Roy and Terry, (3) Lena, Barbara and Pete, (4) Rod, Richard and Gordon, (5) Ray, PD and Boot, and (6) Robert, Kate and Paul. The seventh team, Simon Penna, Dion Beechey and Rob Sullivan (Coaching Inn PC), is yet to play.

Round 2 matches must take place on or before 17 May.
