The Greenheads took part in the Northern Petanque Open Team event of 10 very very good teams at Stockton Fox Sun 21st Oct 2018.
The matches were 3 doubles in the morning followed by 2 triples in the afternoon.
The scoring system was:-
Win by 13-6 or more = 2 points
Win by 13-5 or less = 4 points
Win by 13-0 = 6 points
In Round 1 Rita & Robin managed an excellent result 13 – 3 victory for 4 points
Elizabeth & Brendan and Roy & Christine lost their matches.
In Round 2 we all lost & sat down & collectively said “Oh Bugger”
After the Captain’s inspirational team talk all pairings WON for 2 points each team.
Sadly the story goes down hill from there & neither of the triples could manage a win in the final games.
However a good time was had by Greenheads, played mostly in very good friendly company.
The positive is that we performed better the last year
