Fete de la Petanque
Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th July 2020
You are warmly invited to join us for our 12th Bastille event – our annual weekend of petanque, fun & friendship. We have had visitors from Germany, England, Denmark, Sweden, France, Finland & Scotland, and the emphasis is on camaraderie & competition.
Saturday is our Bastille Mêlée: it’s a chance to play with and against different people, and make new friends: it’s a fantastic leveller and ideal for beginners and experienced players alike! We play 4 games, with the now-legendary mad shooting competition during the break. French themed fancy dress is encouraged (and one lucky punter will be rewarded!). A generous buffet lunch is included, and there is a range of prizes for 1st to 3rd, fancy dress, the wooden spoon - and the coveted “Most Average” prize. Entry is £6 to include buffet lunch.
Sunday is the Caerleon Open Triples: this is a more competitive but still friendly event. The prize pot is guaranteed at a minimum of £200, with prize money increasing with entries. If you’d like to play the Triples but don’t have a team let us know and we will fix you up. Entry is £15 for a team of 3, £20 for a team of 4.
These are unlicensed events so all players are welcome.
We are very lucky that our Bastille weekend coincides with Caerleon’s well established Big Free weekend which is part of the annual art’s festival. The Hanbury and The Bell pubs run a mini music festival over the weekend (free), with bands playing throughout the evenings. Both pubs are lovely locations with good beer and food, so it’s a great way to add to your weekend.
