It was a great pleasure to organise an evening of petanque for the Whitnash Scouts on Tuesday, 20th June.
Sixteen scouts took part, as well as six parents and two leaders and a very enjoyable evening was had by all. Glen, Hannah, Rachel, Carol, Richard and Brenda supplied the coaching of the group and three games of five ends provided the evening’s competition. The scouts, parents and leaders seemed to enjoy the evening and as the evening progressed there appeared to be some natural talent and improvement amongst the group. Prizes of wine for the best adult and chocolates for the top three scouts (boys and girls) of the melee were awarded, and it was great to introduce our sport to youngsters and adults who had never played before.
Whitnash intend to continue with this initiative in the future for similar groups,
