So the Meadlands team win the Adnams Coastal Petanque League title for the second year in a row, defeating the previously unbeaten Cotton team in the Grand Final, where the Cotton team admitted that they just ''didn't get going'' and subsequently lost for the first time in 2012.

On the last boule of the last end in the last game, La Tete Du Turc Hasketon earned the Bronze medal with a 3-1 victory, coming from about 12-8 down, to win the last game over The Dicky II East Bergholt.

All 18 Divisional Winners & Runners Up received trophies after the Grand Final finished, ably presented by Teresa Holman, our representative from Adnams, along with the bronze, silver and gold medals on the day.

Early Bird Registration for 2013 season

Following our previous success in running an Early Bird registration scheme, with an appropriate suitable discount for the Early Birders, we will once again operate this as we will be taking applications for our 2013 season, at the 2012 Grand Finals Day next Sunday.

The forms that will be issued will no longer be ''Entry'' forms but instead will be ''Application To Join'' forms, as we legally reserve the right to decline applications. On the forms there will be a few questions that your team need to answer in order for us to place you in suitable divisions next season.

For the 2013 season we will be setting our Team Entry Fee at £20 per team (if you pay after the expiry of the Early Bird scheme), but giving £5 discount if your team registers before the Early Bird deadline. Whatever date your joins, each team will be issued with a copy of the latest FIPJP International Rulebook, in an attempt to clear up any uncertainty over certain rules & situations that arise during a match.


Sunday 14th October @ Badingham White Horse

The 4 Grand Finalists will be revealed on Sunday 7th October, once the remaining quarter-final matches are played out.

All league members are invited to the Grand Finals Day, so bring along a chair and watch the 2012 Coastal League season reach its climax as our 4 finalists go head-to-head for the Coastal Championship title.
