We have a National Champion!

Some good news for the Club……

Charles Stewart was part of the Triples teams that won the National Veterans Triples Trophy in Leicester on 23/24 July.

The team was also made up of Alan Swift (Wetherby PC) and Richard Burrow (Leeds PC)

Charles is also the Regional President for Yorkshire Petanque.

(His involvement at Regional level, both organisationally and competitively, explains why Charles is not a frequent visitor to Club sessions at the Pierhead, and despite living close by!)

Oatlands Opening Event

The new terrain at Oatlands was officially opened on 19th June, 2022 with Harrogate hosting the annual match against Leeds for the Roy Cotton Trophy.

The weather was good, and following a series of competitive games, Leeds retained the trophy, after which the players and spectators enjoyed a barbecue and some social games.

With the larger terrain and clubhouse at Oatlands, this was the first time HMPC had been in a position to host the event.

Progress at Oatlands

Our new facility at Oatlands will be opening soon.

Today saw the delivery of 20 tons of aggregate, which was then distributed over the site by our working party of volunteers. The Pannal Ash JFC Car Park now resembles the surface of the Moon.

With more working parties to be scheduled, this second site will be up and running in a few weeks.
