Junior Section Up & Bouling

It’s been talked about for months and yesterday it finally arrived – Monkstone Petanque Club held its first Junior Section coaching session!! 11 young people attended the session – 6 club members and 5 other friends of, or children/grandchildren of, club members.

Introductions being over it was down to the serious business. Tony Smith, the Club Coach, ably assisted by Ash Seath, Roger Green and Melys Phinnemore. put the participants through a number of coaching exercises focusing mainly on pointing but with some shooting as well as the basic concepts of how to throw a boule etc etc.

The participants seemed to enjoy activities such as trying to throw a boule into a tyre, trying as a team to knock boules out of a ring before the other team or trying to knock out a row of boules before the other team – all of them designed to teach skills as well as being fun.

The session continued after a break for squash & biscuits and ended with two  games of triples between the participants.

A big thank-you to Tony, Ash, Roger & Melys and for their hard work and to the other club members who turned up to help or to lend support and we look forward to the next session which is planned to be within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

Monkstone Petanque Club wishes to thank Sports Wales and Magic Little Grants (People’s Postcode Lottery) for their continued support which has enabled the club to start this new exciting venture.


Our potential future champions!
