Weekend which has grown from a small in-club event, to a full weekend of
cheerful & competitive pétanque. In
the past few years we’ve welcomed players from Finland, Scotland, Germany,
Sweden & France as well as Scotland & England – and we now have some
folk who book next year’s place as they are leaving on Sunday evening! We are based at Caerleon RFC, and we honour
the competitive, community-focused nature of the Rugby Club in the spirit of
Saturday 11th July is our Bastille Mêlée: it’s a chance to play with and
against different people and make new friends: it’s a fantastic leveller, ideal
for beginners and experienced players alike!

break. French themed fancy dress is
encouraged (and rewarded!). A generous
buffet lunch is included, and there is a range of prizes including the coveted
“Most Average” prize. Registration is
10.30am for an 11am start.

this is a more competitive but friendly event. The prize pot is guaranteed at a minimum of
£200, with prize money increasing with entries. If you’d like to play the Triples but don’t
have a team let us know and we will fix you up. Registration is 9.30am for a 10am start.
events are unlicensed, so all players are welcome. The bar will be open from 11am each day. Please support the club by buying your drinks

are very lucky that our Bastille Weekend coincides with Caerleon’s well
established Big Free weekend which is part of the annual art’s
festivalhttps://www.caerleon-arts.org/what-we-do/the-big-free/. The Hanbury and The Bell pubs run a mini
music festival over the weekend (free) with bands playing throughout the
evenings. Both pubs are lovely locations
with good beer and food, so it’s a great way to add to your weekend: the
hardcore go straight from piste to pub!
