Have you ever thought about petanque?

Following the completion of our successful second season, the Suffolk Coastal Petanque League are already setting their sights on the 2010 season. Petanque is currently one of the five fastest growing sports in the country and anyone can join in.

People normally take around 10 to 15 minutes to be shown the basics of the game. Several factors help in making it a great leisure activity to be involved with, especially that you do not have to be of Olympian-athletic ability to play and it is an incredibly inexpensive pastime.

The league allows players to enter in teams of 4-8 players and the registration fee is just £12 per team for the entire season. Matches are played approximately once every three weeks, starting in April and culminating in grand finals during the last week of September. Leagues are based upon geographical location rather than ability and are limited to a maximum of 6 teams per division. This means a team will have, at the most, five home and five away matches to play over a six-month period. This allows for matches being re-arranged easily to avoid holidays etc and teams are provided with all the other teams contact details at the start of the season to allow easy communication between captains.

If you are at interested in setting up a team or finding out more contact the league coordinator, Simon Fletcher at 18 Melville Road, Ipswich, IP4 1PN or e-mail him at imogenlewiskira@sky.com. Registration closes on 26 February 2010 so act quickly if you’d like to join the fun.
