Hawkes Bay Calling

Suggestion.As we all know the Hawks Bay is an extremely active Petanque region. We now have a wiki page which will have regular news from the HB. Simon is kicking it off, and other HB players will help provide a variety of news items. If this is successful we will invite other regions to do the same.

Follow the link at the end of this post.

First National Clubs Tournament

The 1st National Clubs Tournament held in Rotorua at the weekend. It was an awesome event enjoyed by all, with tons of camaraderie and team spirit, and lots of good natured ribbing between clubs! The weather mostly behaved itself, and the surrounds in Rotorua were stunning!

It was well attended by 14 teams of 6, and played in two divisions based on the triples results from day 1, with doubles played on day 2.

Herne Bay took out the open section followed closely by Bayview. Herne Bay also won the senior division, and division two was won by Cockle Bay who will move up to division one next year, which will possibly be played in Wellington.

Hopefully somebody can provide some photos as I forgot my camera!
