Venue: The Red Lion pub at Hognaston, starting at 11am
We expect to play from April to September inclusive.

WEDNESDAY: fortnightly
July 17th and 31st
August: 14th and 29th
September: 11th and 25th

TUESDAY: fortnightly on alternate weeks to the Wednesday group.
July 23rd
August: 6th and 20th
September: 3rd and 17th

There is no need to book in, just turn up on either or both days. No previous experience is necessary; all are welcome. Current members have varying amounts of experience, the more experienced will guide the rest of us. Members should bring any equipment they own, but the pub has offered the use of some equipment. The playing area is outdoors & the surface is grit. A cloth to wipe boules &/or hands is recommended.

The pub does not seek any hire fee, & will be open from midday to serve drinks & food - those who have eaten there praise the quality of food.

Initially at least, the game will not be taken too seriously. Members could also watch the pub team which plays on Sunday afternoons in local leagues. Apparently the pub teams play according to "The Derbyshire Rules"! U3A members will probably devise their own rules, if any. Various French rules can also be found on the internet.

N.B. the Walking group walks fortnightly on the opposite Wednesday to Petanque.
