Broome Manor Pétanque

Summer Mêlée 2019

This popular competition was held on Thursday 12th September at The Check Inn, Wroughton, on a warm and sunny evening. Although 24 players signed up to play, on the night only 19 were available to play.  This resulted in some rapid reorganisation of the order of play to make games of two fours, a five and a six.  Three rounds were played to 13 points but with a time limit of 35 minutes.  Despite the time limit the second round was played as the sun set and the last under the light of the spot-lights. 

The time limit meant that only 4 games were played to 13 points, over the three rounds, and no-one got 39 points, so no play off was required.

The winner by one point with 32 points was Check Inn regular Richard Fry.
