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.
