Here you can find out how to improve your game by accessing the coaching offered by the Club.
All new members are especially encouraged to engage with Tony Smith, the Club Coach, to have a 2-hour introductory session to learn the basic techniques, so you get the most out of playing against other club members.
The basics of the game are straightforward. It is to get your boule as close to the jack as possible, but in practice, this isn’t so easy. That is why coaching is available.
So, what does the introductory session include?
- The playing area
- Health and Safety.
- Physical capabilities of the player.
- How to hold the boule.
- What is the correct way to throw a boule?
- How to point in a standing position (low, mid & high).
- How to point in a crouching position (low, mid & high).
- Basic rules
- Finish with a game.
There is a 2-hour coaching session every Wednesday afternoon starting at 2 pm. However, if you cannot attend, please do not hesitate to contact Tony and arrange a suitable alternative session.
