EPA Retain the Home Nations Title

I had the pleasure of being Head of Delegation and Team Manager for the EPA Home Nations Squad at the 2015 Home Nations held in Cardiff over the weekend of the 8th & 9th August.

The Welsh Petanque Association (WPA) laid on a very well organised tournament hosted by the Monkestone PC in Cardiff. My thanks go to both the WPA and to Monkstone PC for their great hospitality and very friendly welcome. It was also a great opportunity to meet up with many old friends from Wales and Scotland, with the games were played in a very competitive yet friendly spirit.

There were some very tight games, but in the end the strength in depth of the EPA Squad showed through with the final result of 75 wins to England, 41 to Wales and 28 to Scotland. This was slightly better than our last visit to the Home Nations in Wales at Monkstone PC in 2012. The full results are available here on our website.

Congratulations to England 4 (Adam Sullivan, Ross Jones, Dean Seville, supported by Christina Norris) who won all 12 of their games and being the top side of the tournament.

Well done and thank you to all of the teams that took part, you were a real credit to our association.

Martin Eggleton
EPA President (and very happy EPA Manager)
