Denia U3A vs Javea U3A Petanque

u3a-deniaThe recently-formed Dénia U3A Petanque group, looking for an outlet to practice their new skills, invited the Javea U3A group to an inter-branch match. As the two groups usually meet on different days, the group leaders worked hard to find a day and time that would suit all 28 players. On the afternoon of the 30th October, the Javea visitors travelled to the other side of the Montgo, to Denia´s Home Ground.

 

 

Fourteen players from each side, fought fiercely for their honour, each pair playing 3 matches, praying that the threatened heavy rain would not materialise. Luckily the rain held off until the end of play, when the accumulated points from each pair were totted up. Everyone's honour in tact, the Dénia players were ecstatic to find that they had won the team match (and a small bottle of Rioja each) and the Javea group proudly served up the winning overall pair.

Happily settled in the bar afterwards, everyone enjoyed recounting their best-won points and making new friends with their opposite petanque rivals. The Dénia Petanque group would like to thank their fellow Javea players for making the effort to visit Dénia and look forward to a return match in Javea, sometime in the future.
