AFTER a 2-2 draw against Whitnash Millers, Blossomfield-based Solihull Swifts are currently leading Div. 1 of the West Midlands Summer Petanque League.

The pairs teams of Carol and Barry Cox, and David Summerfield and Liz Kramek both won their opening games but there was disappointment in the triples when Swifts went down 10-13 after some resolute play from Millers saw them come back from 10-4 down.

This week Swifts are at home against 2010 English club champions and 2011 league champions Half Crown Knights.

Solihull Swans are also unbeaten this year and had a comfortable 3-1 win away to Coventry Godiva to head up Division 2 and for the first time the club finds itself heading both leagues.
