Club Petanca Martorell bids farewell to the season with a 12-hour tournament

12 hour petanque tournament

The Club Petanca Martorell has dismissed this Sunday the 2020-2021 season with the celebration of the 12 hours of petanque, a reduced version, due to the health situation, of the traditional 24-hour tournament that the entity usually holds for these dates . The awards ceremony was attended by Mayor Xavier Fonollosa and Councilors Lluís Amat and Lluís Sagarra.

The tournament was held from 19.00 to 21.30 yesterday Saturday and from 00.00 to 9.00 this Sunday, in order to escape the hottest hours. 35 players took part in 14 games, all against each other. The brothers Luís and Ricardo Pérez were the winners, the second prize went to David Cerdà and Joan Cambra, and the third to Germán Mergades and Jesús Vadillo. However, all participants took home a ham as a gift.

“In order to give the members the satisfaction of doing the tournament, we decided to adapt it to 12 hours. Thanks to the new facilities, it has been possible to carry out quietly, at a distance, without crowds, with half of the participants and following all the prevention measures “, said the president of the Club Petanca Martorell, Loli Carballido .

Since 2020, the club has been enjoying the remodeling of its facilities, located next to the Martorell Central Railway Station of the Generalitat. The entity has two more courts, a new social venue, meeting room, offices, toilets and a more spacious children’s play area.

The club, which currently has 18 male players and 15 female players, hopes to be able to officially open its facilities in September.
