Mixed Doubles Club Tournament
With a total of seven teams playing the entire one-day tournament, it was a festival of petanque on another sunny May weekend...
What a great weekend of boules!
What a great weekend of boules! The summer looks like it's trying to put in an appearance and, as is often the case in Brighton & Hove, at the first hint of sunshine, everyone was flocking to the seafront......
Regional Qualifiers Sussex Petanque
Five BHPC players competed across three different teams in the Sussex Qualifiers. There were mixed results but being the first of three regional qualifiers to represent Sussex at the English Petanque Association's Inter-Regional Championships in September, all teams are still very much in with a shout!...
Remember the days when Easter meant an early heatwave, people playing on the beach and everyone getting ready for summer?

This year was more like the traditional British Easter we've become familiar with - howling winds blowing seaspray up onto the terrain, grey skies and freezing cold.
Perfect petanque playing weather. Almost.
Despite this, we managed to coax four teams to join in a quick half-day tournament.
And everyone said they enjoyed it........
