On Monday I returned from London with the NY London Challenge Cup in hand. Once again La Boule New Yorkaise sucessfully won the club challenge against the Harrow Petanque Club of London, defending the cup and securing bragging rights. In a round-robin format of 3 of our triples teams vs 4 triples of theirs, the score was 8-4.
This was the fifth edition of the challenge—the first held in London. Joining me were Steve Matzkin, Kate Brideau, Mark Molatte, and other members of our outpost in Dubai, Priscilla, Lauey, Gregory, Carlo, and Luc.
The Londoners promise to be back next year and I hope we can muster up a larger contingent for when we return in 2 years.
