Petanque

Jersey petanque club Carrefour will be the first from the island to play in the sport's European Champions League.

Carrefour will play in the Confederation Europeenne de Petanque's Euro Cup Champions League in Slovakia.

They will play in Group B against the champion clubs of the Netherlands, Finland, Estonia and Slovakia in Bratislava on 30-31 July.

Jersey is able to send a side to the tournament as the sport views the island as a nation in its own right.

The top two teams in each of the four groups will go forward to the final round on 8-9 October.

Carrefour's squad consists of Sid and Marion Simkin, Frank Morel, Dan Gayet, Michel Morel, Helene Retrosi, Bob Morel and Keith Boleat.
