We are delighted to include some petanque news and successes. Member Claire Bradburn was a part of the New Zealand team who won the Trans Tasman Challenge held at Avoca, New South Wales, early in the year. Here she is holding the trophy with team mates Marilyn Bunce (Alexandra) and Shirley MacDonald (Otaki) both to her right. Congratulations!
Claire has also been selected to represent New Zealand at the Oceania Championship in Vanuatu in March 2016. Last weekend Claire and Brian Bradburn represented Wellington against Southern in Otaki and next weekend are competing in the National Senior Doubles in Kapiti, followed by trials for the New Zealand Senior Team to play Australia in March 2016.
