Bastille Day event – Harrogate Sunday 16th July

Hello All

On Sunday 16th July Harrogate Montpellier Petanque club are holding a belated Bastille Day event.

It will be late morning onwards. You are all invited to attend and the suggestion is a friendly, mixed melee with teams split between the Clubs, and BYO picnic, drinks and chairs around the Pierhead, or overflowing down on to the grass.

Please let us know this Sunday if you are able to attend so they can work out numbers.

Leeds Waterfront Festival – Day 2

Hello All

Just like on the first day at the festival we had a lovely time on the Sunday too. A couple of things made it extra special including members of the Harrogate Montpellier Petanque club joining us for a demonstration match and our sponsors, Brassiere Blanc providing a fantastic lunch.  Many thanks to both and well done to Harrogate for winning the game.

Hopefully we inspired a few new members to come and join the club or at least play a game next time they are on holiday.

Thank you to all our members who helped out on the day – you did a grand job. Here are a few photos:

Leeds Waterfront Festival – Day 1

Hello All

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.

Leeds Waterfront Festival 2017 – details

Hello All

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,
