2019 IPA AGM

The 2019 AGM of the IPA was held on 9th February 2019 in the meeting room Bushy Park, Dublin.

Members will get the draft minutes in due course but the major point to emerge from the meeting was a unanimous decision to seek to rejoin the CEP and FIPJP -the governing bodies of the sport – thus allowing Ireland teams to participate in future international competitions.

Irish Triples 2018

The 2018 National Triples competition was held in a sunny Bushy Park Dublin on Saturday 21st April.  30 players entered and after the round robin stage and semi-finals the final was played between Team Tavares [Humberto Tavares, Gregory Novaresio and Vincent Béritault] and The Di Pizzo Players [Jack di Pizzo, Alain Robert and Msteslav Cozloukov] who, despite putting up a good team performance, lost out 13-6 to Team Tavares.

Congratulations to all participants and thanks to the Park Pétanque Club for the help in running the competition. Thanks also are due to Dublin Corporation for their help in preparing the piste for this event and the forthcoming Celtic Challenge [Ireland v Scotland v Wales] to be contested over the May Day weekend to which spectators are more than welcome.

 

2018 IPA Singles

After a full days play in Bushy Park on Saturday 24th March the winner of this year’s Singles competition was Jack Di Pizzo.

Jack defeated last years champion Sylver Breteche in a sun drenched final.

Thanks as always to the Park Petanque Club for hosting the event, all those who helped in any way and a special thanks to Brian Kavanagh who supplied the photo of Jack with his trophies. Well done!
