Playing Calendar

The Club 2021 Playing Calendar is now available on the website. Let’s hope that all the planned events can take place this year!

Change of Playing Pistes

From tomorrow, 24 April 2021, the playing pistes will be amended to Pistes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12.  We will add the top pistes back in shortly.

If you have already booked for tomorrow or Sunday your piste number may have changed:

Piste Booked New Piste
2 2
5 4
8 6
11 8
13 10
16 12

Please be particularly aware of social distancing now that there is only 1 piste between each playing piste.

April 100 Club Draw

The April draw was made at the club last night and the winners were:

1 Joy Griffin £61.50
2 Helen Edwards £20.50
3 Del Axon £10.25

Its good to see two of the winners, Helen & Dell, coming from people who don’t belong to the Monkstone Club but support us through membership of the 100 Club.

Congratulations to the winners but don’t forget:

YOU HAVE TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT

The more people that join the bigger the prizes. Contact Bernard on treasurer@monkstonepetanque.org.uk if you would like to join or for more details. 

Roll Ups Are Back

Subject only to any change in the Welsh Government plans to allow organised sports activities from 26 April 2021, the Monday Roll Up will recommence on Monday 26 April 2021 and the Friday Roll Up will recommence on Friday 29 April 2021.

It’s Competition Time – We Hope!

Subject to the final confirmation of the announcement from the Welsh Government that we will return to Alert Level 3 and 30 people will be allowed at organised outdoor sports from 3 May 2021, the much delayed 2020 Club competitions will take place as follows:

  • 2020 Xmas Melee – Sunday 9 May 2021 @ 11:00am (limited to 30 players)
  • 2020 Club Doubles – Sunday 16 May 2021 @ 11:00am (limited to 24 players)

The entries made for the original competitions have been deleted so, if you want to enter these competitions, you must book again. The booking system is now open.

Both competitions will take place as melees. The Xmas Melee will be a normal melee, whilst the Club Doubles will be a doubles melee where the pairs will be drawn before the competition and stay together for all 3 rounds. Entries for both competitions are, therefore, from  individual players.

Hopefully we will also restart the Monday & Friday roll-ups on Friday 7 May 2021.

All the above is subject to confirmation by Welsh Government.
