    Two Whitnash Windmill Petanque ladies qualified this year to represent England in the World Petanque Championships, which were held in Spain in November 2021.  The squad, comprising only four ladies in the country, was determined through qualifying competitions throughout the 2021 season, where HANNAH GRIFFIN and RACHEL KELLY succeeded in this qualification process to form fifty percent of the England team.

     

    Whitnash Windmill Petanque Club is very proud of this magnificent achievement, which was well deserved and earned through hard work, determination and constant training over many months.  Five timed games were played which determined which countries progressed to the main World Champs and which would enter the Nations Cup.   The English ladies played exceptionally well to win 2 out of the 5 games, winning 13-6 against Andorra and 13-3 against Austria, but losing against Belgium (13-5), Sweden (10-4) and also in a very tight match against Denmark (10-9) which could have gone either way.   A third win would have put them through to the main event but their narrow loss meant they progressed to the Nations Cup.  There they beat Slovakia in the first round (13-3) but unfortunately they were unable to retain their excellent form and they lost to Canada in the Quarter finals (13-2) where a win would have secured them a bronze medal. 

     

    However, the girls played extremely well throughout the competition, on what were very challenging pistes (playing lanes) and did themselves, the Whitnash Petanque Club, WSSC and the country proud.

     

    WELL DONE HANNAH AND RACHEL

    After our enforced closure due to COVID, we are excited to welcome you back today. (Thursday 22nd)

    Following the government’s announcements concerning the easing of restrictions please see below how we intend to proceed after 19th July.

    Whilst we welcome this positive step, the safety for our members, guests and staff will remain our priority.

    Our staff members will continue to wear face coverings while at work, and we politely recommend the continued use of face coverings by our members and guests in communal areas, hand sanitiser stations will remain in place as will track and trace.

    I’m sure everyone will be excited to lose the table of 6 rule and also be able to visit the bar, however we continue to ask you to be cautious and continue to enjoy the table service which will remain in place during our busier periods.

    We strongly believe that we are building a community club and are excited to be able to create more memories with all of you in the coming months.

    Our new opening hours are below: 

    Mon - Friday 11am-11pm

    Saturday 8am-11pm

    Sunday 12pm - 10.30pm

    Cafe will be open
