Cornwall at the 2011 Inter-Regionals

Some very enjoyable pétanque, a very wet weekend and a rather disappointing final result were the fruits of Cornwall’s trip up the M5 to the English Pétanque Association Inter-Regional competition at Brean Sands, Somerset, during the weekend of 17-18 September.

 For the past three years the Cornwall region has combined with Devon to enter the Championship contest but for the 2011 event Kernow Pétanque took a squad of four teams into the Challenge. The final outcome for Cornwall was 21 wins from 48 games played over the two days, earning fifth place out of the seven teams in Division 2. At the top of the Division 2 table was Isle of Wight, with 31 wins from 48, followed by Great Western and Devon, each with 27.

The most successful Kernow team was no 3 – Rosemary Piggin, Paul Rundle and Susan Williamson – who won seven of their 12 games. Team 1, made up of Robert Herrick, Graeme Kirkham and Dave Piggin, won six of 12. Team 2 (Hugh Appleton, Simon Penna and Rob Sullivan) had five wins and team 4 – new players Andrew and Sarah Jarvis, on their first visit to Brean, with team-mate Roy Pemberton – picked up a creditable three. Team manager, through rain and shine, was Kate Herrick.

 Now its practice, practice, practice: the road to the 2012 event starts here.
