Petanque International Weekend 2022

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.
