  • Norway Vets play GB Seniors LTC at West Worthing

    It was great to welcome 50 guests from the GB Seniors LTC and Norway Veterans for their annual match, which this year took place on the grass courts at West Worthing Club between 2nd and 4th June 2022.

    Players and spectators were (mostly) bathed in glorious sunshine throughout the weekend which made the event all the more enjoyable and memorable, given it’s two year postponement.

    Following a practice session on Thursday afternoon, there was some intensive use of the grass courts on Friday and Saturday for the all important matches which were followed by a friendly but competitive session on the croquet lawns on Saturday evening. Our guests enjoyed a range of meals with us courtesy of Love & Rocket Food. The atmosphere throughout was most convivial.

    The Seniors LTC of GB have a packed fixture list which features matches against USA Indian Wells, AELTC, Queens Club and Hurlingham, to name a few. Their next fixture is in Chattanooga!

    The Southern Weekend of Petanque was back at Worthing over the Jubilee weekend after an enforce two-year break. Organised by Southern Counties Petanque Association, the three-day event attracted players from around the UK as well as from abroad, with a strong contingent coming from France this year.

    The sponsorship deal with Empire Environmental provided a prize fund go £3000, with a guaranteed £200 for each of the Gold winners.

    The weather was kind and the outside caterer’s wood fired pizza proved very popular.

    The winners were:

    Doubles – Nic Baxter and Dinesh Seetahul

    Triples – Ashley Jamieson, Sofiane Lachani and Youssef Boussbaa

    Singles – Mokhtar Benarab

    In a very strong field, our congratulations go to Worthing players, Martin Gordon and Angela Brooks, who won Bronze in the Doubles event.

    There is no doubt that this very popular event will be back next year.
