A jubilant group of Seal Petanque players returned to the UK on Sunday, having won the annual exchange competition between Club de Montreuil and Seal Petanque Club, now in its’ 38th Year!
Over the past 10 years, Seal PC have now won this contest seven times, but this victory was all the more significant as the French were champions in 2012 and 2013.
“Beating the French at a game they all grew up playing is particularly satisfying” said Howard Sandom, Seal PCs Chairman, “especially when we do it over there in France in front of their home crowd”. The French team brought out their local mayor for the two day event and gifts were exchanged in the spirit of “entente cordiale”!
Seal Petanque Club beat French at their own game...encore et encore!
