The East Devon Pétanque Club, which plays at Thorn Park, Salcombe Regis, held its annual doubles competition and picnic last Sunda, writes Brian Diffey.

Fourteen members were present and pairs were chosen by drawing lots at the start of the event.

Everyone was happy with their selected partner, reflecting the club’s ethos of encouraging a friendly and sociable, rather than competitive, spirit.

The games were played in a keen atmosphere, interspersed with much cheery banter.

It was a close-fought competition and every couple won at least one of their matches.
