Inter-Division Challenge Match

Sunday 17th June

The combined force of Pettistree's two teams took on the joint team of Mill Inn Aldeburghs two sides, in a Sunday morning friendly. In a two hour time slot, all games were played as mini-games, with 6 ends being played and the score at the end of the sixth end being the final score. Twenty three games got played, with most players playing with a variety of different team-mates but the overall final score stood at;

Pettistree Greyhound  11  Mill Inn Aldeburgh  10  (with 2 drawn games)

Great short-match format and along the lines of what we plan for the Festival of Boules in July.

The Joy of 'Sax'

In honour of Her Majestys Jubilee Celebrations, Bank Holiday saw the unveiling of a new piste at the Saxmundham Sports and Recreational Club. Approximately 30 people turned up to play and were aided and assisted by existing league players from Aldeburgh, Snape & Hasketon, giving advice and tips whenever asked.

The facility has been organised by the 'Saxy' Ladies, who currently play for the White Lion Aldeburgh but the hope is that this piste will have its own team or teams competing there as of next season. Whilst the piste is fairly soft at the moment (as it's only 3 weeks old), we are sure it will compact down and become an interesting and challenging piste in due course.

There are 'follow up' sessions planned for every Saturday in June, from 4pm to 6pm , starting on the 9th and including the 16th, 23rd and 30th June. All are welcome to attend and boules are available for use (but if you already have your own, please bring them along).

Further details about joining the club and the boules team will be available at these sessions.

Jenny and her fellow members at Saxmundham would like to say thank you to all those that took part and look forward to seeing you again.

Festival of Boules 2012 - UPDATE

Our 2012 Festival of Boules, due to be held on Saturday 21st July and Sunday 22nd July, has just 2 team places left.

Each team must consist of a minimum of 4 players and at least one of those, MUST BE A NOVICE player. On both the Saturday and Sunday evening venues, the respective hosts intend to put on a BBQ or something similar.

All teams are invited to enter, it's free of charge and we get the chance to introduce more people to our sport. You do not have to be current members of the Adnams Coastal Petanque League, as the invite is now open to all, as our league teams have now had sufficient time to take first option. Teams can select to play at as many venues as they want.

At event venue, we will play a mini-round robin between the competing teams, with either timed games or games played over a set number of ends.
