Venue: The Red Lion pub at Hognaston. We currently play on Wednesday lunchtimes, dates are below and in the events calendar. Should demand increase we can also play on Thursday or Friday lunchtimes.

NOW RESUMED AFTER A BREAK DURING LOCKDOWN

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. Under post-lockdown measures, you need to book your slot each week. If it's heaving down with rain we give it a miss.
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 retire indoors at around 12.30 to 1pm for a drink and / or something to eat.
