WPOC World Pétanque Offline Cup
The 1st WPOC World Pétanque Offline Cup organised by the FIPJP.
The preliminary phase of the WPOC has finished and the qualifying results are out for the WPOC 2020 Championships.
Three WPA players who decided to enter to represent Wales had limited time to produce the necessary video for the qualifying sessions.
Derek Jones got his precision shooting and parthian shooting (trick shot) completed on Sunday 3rd August afternoon while Gareth and Michelle Spencer completed their precision shooting just before the deadline of Monday 4th August afternoon.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time for Gareth and Michelle to produce a qualifying parthian shooting video before the 4pm deadline.
Despite the lack of time the results from the players exceeded any expectation, results as below:
Men’s Parthian shooting
Derek Jones – Finalist top 8 (Qualified 5th)
Michelle Spencer – 27th Top Female European player
Derek Jones – 13th Top Male European player
Gareth Spencer – 32nd Second European player
Congratulations to all players an excellent performance.
Derek has now performed another parthian shot for the final phase and this is currently being assessed by the five judges.
