Time to Shine

Wakey, wakey Panthers! It's all happening guys! We have:

- Friendlies arranged with Club de Nomades (Heart of England Region) on Saturdays 4th and 18th April
- a Friendly at the Rose & Crown, Houghton to mark the opening of their new piste (date tba)
- the Rutland League starting early on the 7th April with a Cup fixture
- the Leicestershire League starting on the 29th of April

Hot off the press is news of our latest project - an assault on the Thursday Petanque League. The newly formed Loughborough Panthers team will be playing Pairs matches out of the Plough at Loughborough from the 30th of April with Dave as Captain and one or two other new members joining that squad

Panthers 2 have launched their bid to be Top East Midlands Team at the EPA Inter Regional Championships for the third year in succession - Mark joins Nigel and Simon ('In Like Quinn') in one of the first Regional Qualifier teams to declare. They will have a 'run-out' in the Open Triples on Sunday 12th April at the Plough, Ratby

Negotiations are at an advanced stage for Oakham RFC to host EPA, EMPA and LPA events, including a number of County Match fixtures

A state-of-the-art (and probably over-the-top) Fixture Calendar will be launched shortly on its own page on this site together with an upgraded Map page to reflect our burgeoning empire

The 2015 Results page is ready to record all our imminent conquests - note that there will not be sufficient space for Runners Up 'mentions'. The Treasurer is sourcing a larger Trophy Cabinet as we speak

Advance news: Ian and Nigel will be defending their Leicestershire Open Pairs Cup title on the 19th of April (venue tbd)
