Bandstand Promotion

On a bright and sunny Easter Sunday members from Southsea descended on the bandstand field in order to rope off a demonstration/come and try petanque area.

With the sunny weather there was lots of footfall on the promenade, and plenty of people stopped to watch and take handily placed flyers, with a few venturing to the other side of the wall to ‘come and try’.

Trevor had organised flags from the SCPA to make things look a bit more professional, and it was extremely pleasing to see members from other clubs travel a fair distance to turn up to help support the event. Many thanks to those from both Southsea and other SCPA clubs who attended.

To anyone reading this after taking a flyer, or googling Southsea Petanque after witnessing the event you are very welcome to come and try out the game at one of our normal club sessions. Beginners are always made to feel welcome. Club sessions take place Sunday 1000, Monday 1830, Tuesday 1000 and Thursday 1400. Our normal club terrain is at Southsea Leisure Park on Melville Road, tucked in behind Eastney Swimming Pool. Postcode PO4 9TB.
