Boule on the Green

In the south west corner of East Preston’s Village Green you may in the summer months see a little bit of France.

About five years ago a purpose built terrain was built for the game of Boule which many of you will have played on the beach or seen while on holiday in France.

The game, also known as Petanque, is easy to learn to play although like everything, more difficult to master.

The terrain is free to use and anyone is welcome to play, just turn up with some boules. Several different groups use it
on a regular basis including U3A who have recently started playing twice a week and organisations such as the Twinning Association, Party on the Green and the Clockhouse Bar hold annual competitions. For more information or to find out when the terrain is in use see the notice board on the Green next to the ground or ring Chris on (01903) 771582.
