The Return of The Turks Head, Hasketon

Thanks to sterling efforts by Sarah & Nigel Butters, the new owners of the Turks Head in Hasketon are re-introducing petanque to the pub. With some of the players from the old Turks Head team, they will continue developing interest over this year, with the hope of entering the league fully in 2016.

In the meantime they have taken ''associate membership'' which means they will compete in the Knock-Out Cup (and Plate depending on results) only for this season, thus taking another of the Cup places available.

Welcome back.

Latest 2015 Registration Update

As at Sunday 25th January, we have 35 teams registered for the new season and 26 teams entering the voluntary Knock-Out Cup, along with one team entering the Cup only.

That means there are only 5 Cup places left for all those teams that have yet to register for the League.

2015 Captains Meeting - Friday 6th February

This years Captains Meeting will be held on Friday 6th February at The Chequers Public House, Kettleburgh, with an 8pm start.

The venue has altered this year as it was felt that those that don't normally attend, when it has been previously held at Huntingfield, may attend if the venue was moved to alternative locations. This isn't a reflection on Huntingfield, as they have kindly hosted us for the last few seasons.

The meeting is NOT designed to be an AGM, instead it is an info-sharing meeting, coupled with the allocation of teams to divisions and the First Round Knock-Out Cup draw. We also hand out a list of proposed dates for our various competitions scheduled for the year, as well as details regarding our annual Belgium/Holland trip.

We do not require teams to arrive en masse, instead we ask that one team representative attends (usually the captain or vice-captain). If however you do come as a couple, if there is any voting on matters required, your team will only have one vote.

It is therefore asked that if your team does not attend, that you fully accept whatever decisions are made by the attendees on the evening, as they are intended to be made in the best interests of the league. (As it is not an AGM, the rules of quorum do not apply).

If you intend to enter a team for the 2015 season, we MUST have received your registration form and fees by THURSDAY 5TH FEBRUARY, one day before the meeting.

Goodbyes, Transfers and Hellos

Every year there is always an element of players moving clubs, leaving teams and new teams being created before the start of a new season.

Whilst we are sure that there are several ''movements'' that we are currently unaware of, the notable ones are as follows;

Simon & Lewis Fletcher leave Aldeburgh Boules after nearly 9 years association with that team, however they will appear in this years league with their new team along with some familiar faces and new players to the league

Dave & Julie Mark depart Lets Play Boules Playford and join Crown Inn Snape

We also take the opportunity to welcome our new teams to the 2015 season;
  • Rolling Stones Aldeburgh
  • The Exiles Bealings
  • Carlton Crown Wanderers (the Crowns new team)
