Over the last few weeks our team of four players, Roger & Jane Farrar along with Kath and myself, have been competing in the Northern Qualifiers. This is a series of matches where you play every other team over the three Sunday rounds. The aim is to earn qualification to represent Northern Region in the National Inter – Regional Competition played over a long weekend in September. Of the fifteen teams entered we managed to come seventh thus qualifying for the Championship representative team comprising the top eight teams. Team positions 9th – 12th represent Northern Region in the Challenge Inter Regional Event. Needless to say we feel quite pleased to have achieved this and it will be a great chance to proudly take the Heckmondwike Petanque Club name “down south”.
Coming up this week our team will play its next West Yorkshire League game against Mirfield.
If you’re feeling you’d like to have a go at playing some top quality players, and you’re a Northern associate registered player why not get a triples team together and enter our La British Open competition planned for 21st July/22nd July. It should be a very good competition.
