The 2011 National Petanque Championships will conclude with finals this Sunday at the National Sports Complex. The annual event which began on Tuesday has gained popularity over the years to now feature 244 male and 33 female players hailing from 26 clubs in this edition.

The participants are competing in categories including men’s and women’s singles; men’s, women’s and mixed doubles; and men’s, women’s and mixed triples. These ‘Pointing’ events have been split into divisions A1 and A2, while individuals can also vie for honours in the Shooting discipline.

The championships has already claimed the scalp of Sok Chanmean, gold medal winner in Men’s Individual at the 2009 SEA Games in Vientiane, who made a shock exit in the second round on Wednesday.
