Brickendon Petanque Boules Club

Come and play Pétanque

Our club is based at The Farmer's Boy, Brickendon, Hertfordshire and is affiliated to the Chiltern Region of Pétanque England.

We are a very sociable club and have 5 floodlit pistes situated next to the car park opposite the pub. Visiting players of any standard are always welcome, so even if you've not played before come and give it a try - we'll supply the boules and lots of encouragement.

From April to September we play in 2 local leagues and we also participate in other events throughout the year.

I'm sorry, but not only was yesterday's weekly update incorrect, but it has already been superseded! (I lost to Mavis AGAIN this morning, so I'm seeking a hit man...) Next update will be next Monday. Eric.

8.00am inspection  31/1/2019
Hughie L reports that, whilst the playing surface is covered in Tuesday's snow, the carpark gravel is not and that the equivalent of 4 'pistes' are free to play on! Those members intending to play are advised to dress appropriately for cold weather!

Snow covered piste  30/1/2019
The temperature is too low for the snow cover to disappear over night. So I fear that play will not be possible tomorrow.
JL  
Thursday snow boule  24/1/2019
The piste displays large areas without residual snow, so games can be played. A bag of salt is available to treat paths and woodwork.
Those with thermal layers and gloves could enjoy a bracing game or two at 10.00; see you there!!!
