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 23rd March. We may start a little earlier if there are keen participants.
With the warm weather in November we may move onto the grass under the trees where a little bit of shade helps.
We usually finish well before Christmas and then restart around mid March or so depending on the rain.
Keep it in mind for next year as we could always increase our numbers.
Next time you visit the Botanic Gardens, you will see the “Bocce” court near the Maltese Gardens where all the Desert Roses are blooming.
