Backyard Boule, French Boules or Bocce are other variations of the name and game. We play on Thursday afternoons from 3.00p.m. to 4.00p.m. We meet informally at the Lagoon Street Café after 2.30p.m. for a social chat before moving to the “Bocce” area adjacent to the Malta Gardens.
Directions are: Facing the Café go right walk over the waterfall bridge along to the Golden Arches. It is a lovely sunny place and shade is available if required. Come to play the game or just have a chat. We have a few ladies but both male and female players are needed as not all are able to participate each week.
We are happy to share our equipment initially but then you might decide you would like your own sets.
There is no cost on the day other than perhaps a coffee.
Dependent on the weather, we will resume on the 22 March 2018. We may start a little earlier if there are keen participants.
We have had a good year playing, mainly only 3 or 4 of us but we have enjoyed every week apart from when it was too wet at the initial start date and then the cyclone! We have an annual luncheon being held on the 30th November at the Boomerang. We will then recommence on 22nd March, 2018 weather permitting.
It is a big break but the “court” is just not suitable any earlier.
Merry Christmas to everyone and we look forward to a few more people trying out a very easy and enjoyable game of Petanque (Bocce).
