The first batch of entry forms, named ''Wave 1'', will be e-mailed out this Saturday 30th April, for players to enter our international petanque event at Ipswich Waterfront on Saturday 9th July 2011.

The event itself sees our representative side take on a visiting contingent of Belgian players and has secured Grant Funding, Marina and Borough Council support for the competiton.

''Wave 1'' forms will be issued to persons who registered their interest in the tournament way back in November last year, with ''Wave 2'' entry forms being issued one week later, on Saturday 7th May, to those who've registered interest during the first part of this year.

Ipswich North Sea Trophy - REGISTRATION UPDATE

As most of you know, we have our International Petanque tournament set up for Saturday 9th July when our friends from Belgum invade Ipswich and we take them on at the Ipswich Waterfront.

There is the need to carry out a proper registration period and we set out below the timetable as follows;

Registration Details sent to those who expressed an initial interest when we originally asked: Saturday 30th April
Registration Details sent to others who we wish to invite/need to invite:
Saturday 7th May

Registration Details sent out to our general petanque contacts:
Saturday 14th May

Closing of Registration: Saturday 25th June 2011 (this is due to printing deadlines for the events official programme)
Date of Event: Saturday 9th July 2011

The event itself is a pairs competition and the cost is £15 per pair. The entry fee MUST be sent with the official entry form, cheques made payable to ''Suffolk Coastal Petanque Alliance'' and returned to the League Co-Ordinator at the address given on the official entry form.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on the basis of the League Co-Ordinator receiving your entry fees at the address stated. If the event is over-subscribed, preference will be given to teams who enter one pair rather than teams who make multiple entries. This is to make sure our League is represented fairly.
However there will only be around 20 'pairs' places available for the English side in the tournament.

Goodbye Ye Olde Coach & Horses...Hello La Tete du Turc

The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice from this weeks league results, a new name appears in the Gipping Division.

Ye Olde Coach & Horses at Melton has been boarded up, we don't quite know the reason why but it has left the Melton team without a home venue. However some quick negotiation by the Melton players has seen them quickly relocate to the Turks Head @ Hasketon and re-name themselves La Tete du Turc.

Thanks to Brent, Nigel et al at the Turks Head for allowing this to happen and thanks also to Mike from Melton for getting it sorted out quickly and efficiently.
