Russell Harris Fun Pairs Report 2012

Wanderers St Faiths Petanque Club staged their annual Russell Harris Fun Pairs at the St Faiths Centre on Sunday 28th May.

Despite a Norfolk versus Suffolk match having been staged at the same venue on the previous day the promotion still attracted a good attendance on a very hot and sunny day.

It was encouraging that people travelled from Woodbridge, Bury St Edmunds and Diss to compete and the format of the competition with bonus starts for specific categories and a pre-tournament chosen double score bonus round ensured many twists and turns during the afternoon's play.

At the conclusion four combinations recorded five from a possible six wins with Derek and Jessica Shoesmith claiming first place with a points differential of plus 32. Last year's winners Michael Neal and Chris Cunningham finished second with plus 30, Tony Desposito and Daniel Shevlin third with plus 23 and Bob and Chloe Urquhart fourth with plus 18.

The next Club promotion is a Nine Boule Triples tournament at the St Faiths Centre on Saturday 30th June with registration from 12.30pm for 1.00pm start.
