This years boules tournament takes place on Monday 1st May on the Boules Playing Area in Alice Park. Come along and have some French style fun!
It’s a triples tournament with teams of 3 players (playing squad maximum of 5 for the tournament duration) competing for the The Rose and Crown Trophy
At least 1 person per team will need to register at the organiser’s table in the park between 10am and 10.50am for an 11.30 start. We will break for lunch at about 1.30 and finish about 5.30 pm.
Entry Fee: £1 per player (under 16s, 50pence, but must be supervised on and around the playing area by an adult at all times). Payment on the day at registration please.
The format/method of organising the event will be determined on the day according to number of entries, weather etc. There will be prizes for winners and losers.
Dress: In French Style, of course. (at least something red, white and blue, although be prepared for English style weather!) Flat sole shoes are best. Prize for best dressed players.
Players should bring own boules. 2 boules per player needed, but some spares will be available to hire or buy. Player substitutions may be made during matches but only between ends.
Beginners, don’t worry, rules of play will be explained but you’ll very quickly get the hang of it all. Help and advice will be readily available. There’ll be lots of other exciting things going on in the park and around the café on the day: live music etc. Refreshments available all day at the park café.
