Backyard Boule, French Boules or Bocce are other variations of the name and game. We meet at 2.45pm. to commence play from 3.00 – 4.00 pm. at 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.
We look forward to a few more people trying out a very easy and enjoyable game of Petanque (Bocce) so why not come down to the Mackay Botanic Gardens and have a go!
Petanque (Bocce as some know it as) is played approximately from just after the wet season to end November on a sandy court at the Botanic Gardens in Lagoon Street West Mackay. We have had a dedicated small group turning up every week at 2.45 pm. to commence playing at 3 pm on a Thursday.
We have plenty of equipment to go around and need more players to keep the game going as our members strive to attend each and every week.
Please remember to sanitize and keep safe distance during COVID
Our way to a fun, social game each and every Thursday 2.45pm to 4pm at the Botanic Gardens. Six or more players roll up for an hour of chat, laugh and play Bocce. Skill levels vary but lady luck always has her say in how things pan out in the end as well.
One week this month we had the pleasure of Cooper, Sue Horne’s happy go lucky rescue dogs’ company to oversee fair play although alas he didn’t help Sue’s all ladies team to victory. Well done gentlemen
plus one. We wish Shelley safe and enjoyable travels and look forward to her return to the group and her excellent role as co-ordinator.
Telephone Susan Vince on 0417784499 or Cathy Lee on 0419708850 as I will be away for a while. Thank you, Shelley Field co-ordinator.
