SA Pétanque League Convocation to the 2016 Annual General Meeting

We have a legal requirement to hold an Annual General Meeting. However, the AGM should not be considered a chore. It gives us all the opportunity to gather together, review the successes and problems of the past year and to get new people involved in the administration of the League. In this way we will all ensure that the League continues to prosper and grow with the support of clubs and players in its activities and governance.

Each club affiliated to SAPL will, in the near future, receive a formal invitation to be represented at the SAPL Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 28 July at 7 pm in the Club de Petanque d’Adelaide club rooms.Continue reading

It was all going according to script — right up to the final…Continue reading

SA Interclub Competition Round 5-held at Gawler Pétanque Club 17 April

Those who ventured to Gawler for Round 5 were rewarded with some idyllic weather. On the pistes, the rewards also came for some but were a little elusive for others.

Just to recap, last season it was Allan Sanderson, Brett Williams and Mike Mulvihill, from Prospect, who were gunning for the ‘three-peat’ of consecutive gold medals. They got within a whisker of pulling it off but, in the third leg, they fell at the last hurdle and had to settle for silver.Continue reading
