London v New-York 2018

It’s that time of year again where London Petanque takes on the New Yorkers on June 10th at Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
Barry Wing as Captain will be looking for players to take part in rounds against our counterparts from across the water. Barry, as always will try and involve and play as many players as he can on the day.
We will probably need a squad of around 15-20 players for this competitive event so please contact Barry W to let him know if you’re available for selection.
For those of you who don’t know the history of the event. This was an event started many years ago by Simon Adamsdale when he overheard Ernesto from New York in an elevator talking about playing boule. Simon became friends with a group of players and arranged a UK vs USA with a handful of players.
The event has grown year on year in its popularity and next year we will visit New York again who will be our hosts.
Last year was won narrowly by the Yanks and we are looking to win the famous cup back in 2018.
This event is always great fun and played in a great spirit.
Please contact Barry Wing now if you’re interested in being selected.
