The Wales squad have been given a fantastic boost as they depart Welsh shores for France this week for the 2018 European Triples (Women) Championship.
The team consisting of Caerleon Petanque Club’s trio; Barbara Vaughan, Gemma Foster and Tansy Mayfield as well as Monkstone Petanque Club’s Jayne Dunn travelled to the seaside resort of Palavas les Flots, some 6km south of Montpellier for the biennial event on Wednesday. And the team will certainly look the part when play starts on Thursday, in their brand-new Welsh kit

Under the watchful eye of National Shooting Champion and coach Kon Tomczyk, the Welsh team will compete in the qualifications and repechages for the precision shooting event on Thursday. The Championship commences on Friday morning at 08:30 (07:30 BST) and continues through the Sunday evening.

Good Luck to Barbara, Gemma, Jayne and Tansy over the coming days.
