2022-2023 InterClub Competition Round 6 – Novar Gardens Petanque Club – 28th May 2023

Round 6 was another wet one, with several periods of rain during the middle of the day. But no amount of rain would have been enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the 32 teams that took part in what was the final and deciding round of the Interclub competition. The stakes were high, as there were five clubs still in with a chance of winning the championship – something we’ve never seen before (and may never see again). Fortunately, the showers stopped just in time to avoid rendering many of the pistes unplayable. Continue reading

2022-2023 InterClub Competition Round 5 – Club de Petanque d’Adelaide – 26th March 2023

Round 5 was played at Club d’Adelaide in slightly damp conditions. However, the intermittent showers were so light that they had little impact on either the terrain or the players. There was no wind and the temperature was comfortable.

This was a round where experience rose to the fore as three highly credentialed teams from three different clubs took their place on the podium. The bronze medallists were Rada Pierre, Alain Rousse & Dominique Pierre, from Adelaide. In second place were Prospect’s Melissa Scott, Ha Nguyen & Van Nguyen. On the top step were Alexi Alexi, Iskender (Ken) Maski & Craig Stewart, for Eastern Suburbs. All of these players have been in this position before, but one deserves a special mention.Continue reading


Following recent misunderstandings I have decided to step down from the position of SAPL President effective 6 March 2023.

Clubs will be asked to ratify both these proposals at the next SAPL Committee meeting planned for the 1 April 2023.
