CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS, WILL RESUME AS SOON AS THE PUB IS OPEN AGAIN

Venue: The Red Lion pub at Hognaston. We have been playing on Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtimes, after resumption dates will be shown below in the events calendar. Should demand increase when we resume, we can add further days.

When bad weather strikes it's useful to be able to communicate quickly, so we now have a WhatsApp group, and for those not on WhatsApp, there's a text message option.
If you would like to join the WhatsApp group or receive a group text l will need your mobile number. Be aware that your fellow group members will be able to see your phone number and /or your name.

***********************************************

We play year round, and only if it's heaving down with rain do we give it a miss.

Under post-lockdown measures, players must book their slot in order to play. We use our own own personal equipment and must not touch that of any other player. The group also supplies other items of equipment (a jack and items for scoring and measuring) all of which are used under strict 'Covid' rules.

We're a very social group and have a lot of fun. No previous experience is necessary; all are welcome. We have members who have been playing for years, some more seriously than others, and others have only just begun.

The 'terrain' (playing area) is outdoors & the surface is grit. A cloth to wipe boules & / or hands is recommended, especially if it's damp.
The pub does not charge a hire fee, & is open from midday. We typically finish at around 12.30 to 1pm for a drink and / or something to eat.
