Congratulations to Martyn Brookes, Gavin Charlton and Mo Annane for winning the 3rd day of the Bath Boules festival held at Queens Square in the City of Bath . They were undefeated all day after 10 matches. Chris, Thierry and Andy (shown right) also recently played in the Londonaise which meant playing doubles and triples over the weekend at a very high standard which included players from all over the world. The team finally got knocked out in the last 16.
The club recently held their Spring Open Triples
event at Larkhall which turned out to be a great day of Boule and some really close and tense matches. The Open Cup winners were two visitors from Alkmaar, Holland ably assisted by one of the CoBPC, members Mark. Runners up were Lee, Chris and Clive from the Codrington Arms. Well done to everyone who took part to make it such a special day.
