Round 2 at Novar Gardens Petanque Club – 22 Sept, 2019
The renaissance of SA pétanque continued in Round 2 with a population explosion. Undeterred by the threat of showers (which fortunately stayed away for the most part), a staggering turn-out of 87 players took to the pistes at Novar Gardens.
at: Adelaide Hills Petanque Club – 28 Oct, 2018
This year’s Mixed Doubles Championship was played under ideal conditions – mild temperature, warm sun, no wind, no rain, no hail, no fog. The sort of weather one normally gets at Stirling when there isn’t a petanque tournament on.
Round 2 at Gawler Petanque Club 23 Sept, 2018
Perfect spring weather, some serious petanque and plenty of bonhomie were the rewards for a large turnout of competitors in Round 2. As usual, the Gawler club went all out to make it an excellent day, serving breakfast as well as lunch to the hungry petanquers.
Welcome to the new League members who will be representing our club at the upcoming league days this year.
