Coaching Session – Saturday 8th April 2017

Hello All – do you feel like you need a bit of guidance on how to point that perfect boule? Or ideas to give you confidence to shoot more often….here is some help!

Mike Walkley, the regional coach is going to lead a 2 hour coaching Session for club members on Saturday 8 April between starting at 11am at the Club terrain on Glen Road. This session will be suitable for players of all levels of experience. 

If you would like to participate, please can you confirm your attendance to James, Club Secretary, so we can advise Mike of numbers. If you could let us know as soon as possible please.  

There is a small charge of £5 for the session to cover expenses. 
We propose to have a game or two afterwards to put what we have learned into practice. These sessions have proved really useful in the past and come highly recommended. 

See you tomorrow!


LPC Christmas Do 2016

It may feel like Christmas was six months ago but here are some snaps from our excellent Christmas do at the HEART centre in Headingley. The food, drinks and venue were all fab plus the quiz and slideshow this year really made is special. Thank you to Malcolm, Sam and all the organisers!

In 2016 it was great to welcome Jo to the club and have Richard back in fine form. I know we all miss Roy very much; he was such fun to have on your team and it has been lovely to have Sally come and play.

This year we are planning on supporting all the usual activities including our open day, the Waterfront and Kirkstall festivals and taking part in the various competitions.

Here’s to a great 2017 at LPC!

Let’s get digital…digital

Hello All

Since the creation of our club website in 2013 the number of visitors has risen over the years as shown below.

It’s great to see how well it is being used and I hope you continue to find it a good source of information (and fun). One of its main purposes is for folk interested in playing pétanque in Leeds to find key information quickly; such as where and when we meet. It’s also useful to read about ideas on how to play better and check up on what other clubs and players are getting up to.

With this in mind I would be grateful if you could help us increase its usage even further by showing the website to both current members of the club who do not use it (quite a few I think) and anyone who is interested in becoming a member.  It would be even better if you could get them to add their email address to the site so any new posts are sent to them directly. 

It’s easy to do:

Step one: Go to the website (just google ‘Leeds Pétanque’)

Step two: Scroll down to the bottom of the page till you see the following –

Step 3: Enter your email address and press the ‘Follow’ button.

See it is so simple…why not sign someone up today!

Any ideas for new posts, improvements to the site and/or any articles to post up always welcome. Just let me have them and I’ll try and make you famous!

All the best,
