Huge congratulations to those members who played at the Euro cup semi finals this weekend in a very cold and cloudy Luton over the weekend of 6 and 7 April 2019.
Day one, Round one was against the Railway Inn, on paper possibly our toughest opponents and we struggled a bit to get into our first two triples games. Both teams came through to take the wins and this paved the way for a full round of wins - also winning all six singles and three doubles against them to take all 31 points.
Round two was against British Sugar on more challenging terrains. Despite a very close last doubles match where we were 5-12 down, again it was a comfortable whitewash across the board - another 31 points and a great advantage to take into day two.
The following day was just as dull and chilly and our round three opponents were Nottingham. Both teams won the triples pretty convincingly before moving on to their singles games.
Here we won 4 of our 6 games which meant we had definitely earned our place in the final at the end of the month.
Emphatically winning all three doubles 13-0, 13-1 and 13-2, London Petanque Club definitely showed everyone that we are a force to be reckoned with and a serious contender for this year’s title. Well done everyone.
