Latest report from the Woodstock Petanque Club

Yesterday we spent a nice afternoon playing Boules at Woodstock Pétanque Club in Edgeley, Stockport. The day was even nicer as I won all three of my games! Emily also played well on her first appearance of the new season, with two wins from three games.

In my first game I was teamed up with Richard J to take on Barbara and Joan. Richard had won the first session of the season so was undefeated in his three games so far. It was also the first-time we'd been paired together, but what a team we made, picking up the victory 13-4.

Next up was a game against Emily and Hilary J. For this contest I was paired with Andrew and in a close match we won 13-11.

My final game of the afternoon was a three-on-two game pitting me and David C against the trio of Cath, Hilary J and Jean W. The match was also the last to finish as we battled to a 13-8 victory, the scoreline not showing how close the game actually was.

Woodstock Pétanque Club meets on the piste at Alexandra Park in Edgeley, Stockport on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. Membership for the year is £10, with a £1 fee for each afternoon you play. A bargain of a price to spend playing a fun and skillful game in great company.
