Let’s play Petanque!

Welcome to Cobbetts Boules Club.
We play Petanque (also known as French Boules) all year round on our purpose-built terrains at Burridge Sports and Social Club near Southampton. New members are always welcome, from absolute beginners to seasoned champions. To find out more, click here.

We have today received the following message from BSSC:

“With the concerns about our members health and well-being utmost in mind, it has been decided that there is little choice but to close BSSC Club and Grounds with immediate effect until further notice.”

Additionally the region have said:

“We very much regret that we have suspended all competitions, leagues, meetings and other activities with immediate effect and until further notice. We will consider how we might resume activities later in the year, when it is safe and practical to do so. We recommend that all clubs in our region also follow the government’s directive regarding social distancing and suspend all their activities accordingly.”

Therefore, however reluctantly, we have to accept that club activities are suspended for the time being.

Look after yourselves everyone. Hope to see you back at Cobbetts sometime in the not too distant future.
