Covid-19 (Updated 29th November)
The new tiered system came into operation on Wednesday 2nd December.
Clubs and leagues in all tiers can now play again. There are no restrictions on the number of players that can gather outside to play petanque at club venues, but the numbers that can be safely accommodated should be subject to a risk assessment.

Cobbetts Winter Indoor League

We are sorry to have to confirm that current government restrictions mean that we will be unable to run our Indoor League this year. This will probably not come as a surprise to anyone! We delayed this decision as long as possible, even holding a ‘plan B’ in reserve (to start the competition in January) but reluctantly we have come to the conclusion it just will not be possible this year. We want to thank everyone who has supported us in the past and very much hope to see you all there again next year.

Upcoming club matches

  • Sunday, December 13th Cobbetts Poppy Appeal Doubles, Burridge (Limited to 20 teams – Entry Full)
    We are delighted to confirm that we will be going ahead with this event on Sunday 13th December.
    Thanks to generous donations and poppy badge sales, a cheque for £250 was delivered to the Royal British Legion last week to ensure we managed to make some contribution to their 2020 fundraising. We hope to be able to give them another cheque for at least the same amount with the profit from the competition and other fundraising on the 13th.
  • Sunday, December 20th Christmas Melee 10:30 a.m. (Wear your Christmas jumpers and hats!)
