GWR Events / Tournaments


A coaching day was held at Filton PC with Chris Garratt and Thierry Sarkissian. It was an excellent and enjoyable day. It started with the theory of basic technique and moved on to games to practise the theory with the emphasis on shooting. This also gave the chance of being coached and watched by the coaches. The day was very well though out and thanks goes to Chris and Thierry and Filton PC for hosting the day.

City of Bath PC

The club recently held their Spring Open Triples

event at Larkhall which turned out to be a great day of Boule and some really close and tense matches. The Open Cup winners were two visitors from Alkmaar, Holland ably assisted by one of the CoBPC, members Mark. Runners up were Lee, Chris and Clive from  the Codrington Arms. Well done to everyone who took part to make it such a special day.
