The East Devon Petanque Club held its annual doubles competition and picnic at its piste at Thorn Park, Salcombe Regis, Sidmouth, home, 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.
We took a break at lunchtime for a picnic and a bit of chit-chat and play continued in the afternoon.
