The older ones helped the younger ones to find the best shooting position
For the Memmingen cleaner girls it was on the one hand the disadvantage of being in a group together and having to play against each other right from the start. The older Marina Putzer just lost.

To start in the field of the six best players of the Boccia Bund Germany, it first required the motivation of her husband, who also plays Boccia, in order to take part in the tournament at all. As a top division player, she recently just barely missed promotion to the II. Bundesliga in a relegation tournament, all the greater the unexpected success in this DM. With a total of four games won and only one defeat, Marica Pankovic could no longer take the title of the DM. Second place went to Margherita Tesoro from Augsburg, third place went to the highly popular Morena Spiga from SSV Anhausen.
The tournament management only revealed the order after the tournament was over, which caused great joy and disbelief in the winner from Memmingen at the award ceremony.
The men's field, with 29 players, started on Saturday, with the Pallino player Horst Tippelt, who made it to the round of 16, and Helmut Wassermann, who was eliminated after the group phase, then made a name for himself as a referee (Distinction, as a sovereign referee).

The placements were then achieved in this order. German champion thus Domenico Ferrara in front of the "up-and-coming young" generation.
At the festival evening of the Bocciabund Germany, the ranking winners of all leagues were honored and awarded certificates and trophies. With Pallino Memmingen who
Youth player Marina Putzer with fourth place in the U18 youth league of the BBD.

Since after the last official league tournament 3 women with the same points were in 5th place and this place is the last promoted place in the ranking, these three had to play a decider. It was our player Pankovic Marica as well as the player from SSV Anhausen Spiga Morena and FC Mintraching Dietrich Cornelia.
The elimination game took place in Offingen so that the same conditions prevailed for all three.
In the end, our Marica only narrowly escaped the ascent. With an excellent performance, she unfortunately only reached second place in the end and thus does not move up to the 2nd Bundesliga.
