After a great first day with lots of fun games and showing of festival goers how to play … some really good players out there! … we need to repeat it all again. The terrain is playing exceptionally well and this is mainly down to a lot of hard work put in by Richard M on Friday who swept up all the gravel from around the area. He deserves a massive thank you!
Today we are meeting at 1030am to setup the terrain – please come and help if you can.
Around 1pm today, we have arranged a special match between ourselves and Harrogate Montpellier Petanque club. Please come and support us.
It’s the festival this weekend and with pleasant weather forecast it should be popular as usual.
If you are free and able to help the club demonstrate how to play pétanque to the festival goers that’s great. Your support will be much appreciated by all.
The plan is to meet at 11am each day outside the Leeds branch of the Brassiere Blanc restaurant down by the Leeds Liverpool canal in the city – please see the map above.
Parking is quite limited around that area so I suggest using public transport but you may find a pay and display car park space on the road nearby or walk from one of the city’s many car parks.
We start at 11am and finish around 4pm. When we finish on the Saturday we need to pack up the terrain and any help appreciated.
Our sponsors, Brassiere Blanc, have offered us some lunch and it will be confirmed on the day. Normally a few of us take it in turns.
Please wear your club colours if you have them.
On the Sunday we have arranged a triples match versus Harrogate Montpellier club starting around 1pm. Should be fun.
Thank you in advance for your support. Please come for as much as you can and all help appreciated.
Any questions don’t hesitate to contact me or send a comment on here and I’ll reply.
See you soon,
Message from Pam:
Congratulations to our brilliant team on more wins in the league.
Well done, gentlemen, and thank you!
A massive thanks to Pam for all her organising of the team! She’s doing a fantastic job and we’d be lost without her support.
Not a bad spot for a game!
Lots of practice going on here in Montenegro, which is needed after being beaten twice by beginners!! Mismatching boule and a terrain with what appears to be a sand pit in the middle are what I’m putting the blame on…
Good luck for upcoming matches
See you all soon
Check this out: match
Good game, mixed teams, ridiculous terrain surface and all very tactical…
Recommendation from Paul. Enjoy!
A reminder it is the Leeds Waterfront Festival 2017 on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June. We need your help both days to demonstrate pétanque and show the festival goers how to play.
Please come for one or both days. On Sunday afternoon we are going to have a friendly match against Harrogate Montpellier Petanque club.
Plus remember your hard work will be rewarded by some lunch from our sponsors Brassiere Blanc!
More details will be provided on Sunday. Thank you in advance for your support. It’s always a fun couple of days and well worth taking part in.
