Fareham Charity Melee – 22 July 2017

32 players from Fareham, Porchester, Cobbets, Southsea, Southampton, The Ship and Arundel petanque clubs entered our charity melee in aid of Hants and IoW Air Ambulance.

  • 2nd place – Mike Sheppard (5 Wins +36)
  • 3rd place – Gerry McAleese (4 Wins +34)
  • 4th place – Alan Samuels (4 Wins +30)

Gerry also won the “Shoot the Egg” competition – thanks to Paul Hayward for running this competition.
