Sport

There are many competitions and challenges that take place between Rotary Clubs locally and within out Rotary District, these include snooker, billiard, bowls, darts, golf, quizzes, petanque, with the occasional 10 pin bowling or even fishing session. Our Club enthusiastically if inexpertly take part in these with varying degrees of success but it is a great opportunity to meet other Rotarians and enjoy their company.

As a Club we have embraced Petanque as our main sport and have adopted Merley Community Centre, Harrier Drive, Merley, BH21 1XE as our home terrain. We compete in division one of the local New Forest Petanque League playing teams from over a wide area.

Victor Horsfall-Turner Charity Boule

Challenge Trophy

Sunday 20th August 2017 commencing at 10.30hrs

Note change of venue

Now at Muscliffe Park,  Shillingstone Dr, Bournemouth BH9 3LR

The Rotary Club of Bournemouth North are proud once again to promote this event in the memory of Victor Horsfall-Turner who was a highly respected Rotarian for many years and amongst many other things a very keen bouler.

The event is for mixed teams of 2, at least one of which must be a Rotarian. Teams will be drawn into groups and play the other teams in that group. Subject to the number of entries, we expect that each team will get at least four games. There may be a semi-final and final depending on the number of teams and available time.

We aim to finish by 16.30-17.00 hrs – again subject to the number of entries. In any event the object of the day is to have fun and raise a little money for good causes. There will also be a raffle on the day.

Games will be played under the Rules of the English Petanque Association.

The entry fee is £10.00 per team payable in advance if possible. (Cheques made payable to “Rotary Club of Bournemouth North” please.

Due to a late change the venue is now Muscliffe Park, Shillingstone Dr, Bournemouth BH9 3LR. Unfortunately there are no catering facilities at this revised venue and so a Picnic Lunch is advised.

Those wishing to enter are requested to register in advance with Chris Chubb on 01202 425063 or by email chris@chubbfamily.net
