Colley earns international Petanque recognition

PETANQUE: PROMISING Whitnash petanque player Aimee Colley has earned international recognition.

The talented 18-year-old will represent England at Espoirs level in two forthcoming matches in France

Colley makes her England debut at St-Omer from August 11-13 and follows up by playing in the European Espoirs championships at Saint Pierre Les Elbeuf, south of Rouen from September 21-24.

The honour is just reward for Colley who was introduced to the sport by her grandparents at Whitnash Windmill Petanque Club nine years ago.

She steadily progressed through the ranks, representing the Heart of England region at junior level on several occasions, which has culminated in an England call-up.
