2023-2024 InterClub Competition Round 5 – Club de Petanque d’Adelaide – 24th March 2024

A near-record turnout of 32 teams contested Round 5 at Club d’Adelaide in perfect weather conditions.

Taking out the day’s top honours were the familiar faces of Vincent Bulone, Ha Nguyen & Van Nguyen. This is their fourth win of the season and they become the first unchanged trio to achieve that feat. The silver medals went to Rada Pierre, Alain Rousse & Adrian Clements, from Adelaide, and ESP’s Dave Ward, Ray Drummond & Craig Stewart rounded out the top three.

With one round left to finish the season, the championship is not settled yet. Second-placed Club d’Adelaide continued to mount a strong challenge and finished with four teams in the top ten. However, after taking some punishment in Rd 4, Eastern Suburbs reasserted themselves this time, with teams finishing 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th (very odd). The resultant points haul increased their buffer at the top of the table from 9 pts to 21 pts. That’s not insurmountable, but Adelaide will have their work cut out for them if they are to snatch the title.

Thanks to the hosts, Club d’Adelaide, and the volunteers for all your hard work. It was great to have some new terrain to spice things up a bit.
