Thunderboules are go!

Looks like we have enough players for the doubles session at St Anthony's Gardens, Penzance, tomorrow (Sunday 14 January), and the Met Office forecast is good. 

Registration 10.45 - start of play at 11.00. Three timed games. All welcome. See you there.


Winter boules safari

The next winter doubles outing will be next Sunday, 14 January, at St Anthony's Gardens, Penzance.

We plan on three games. Registration 10.45 - start of play 11.00. Open to all.

A number of people have already said that they won't be available for various reasons. So that we can be sure that there will be enough players to make it a worthwhile event (minimum four pairs), please email Graeme to confirm ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Mince pies . . . and drizzle

The Santa Shoot melée brought another petanque year in Cornwall to a close. And like several other competitions during the past 52 weeks it was good fun and good company, but ended up a bit damp!

Twelve players turned out on Sunday 17  December to play four rounds of timed games at the Star Inn, St Day. Five finished the contest with three wins. Top scorer was Mike Turnham with a points difference of +19, followed closely by Mark Hypponen with +16.

In third place was Kernow President Pete Lynas with +10.

Time to ponder the successes (and otherwise) of the year and remember to include among the New Year's resolutions: practice, practice, practice!

The next event will be another in the winter doubles series, on 14 January - look out for details here.


Seasonal greetings from Kernow Pétanque

A Happy Christmas and very best wishes for 2018 to pétanque players everywhere.


Deck your halls with boules and holly

The annual Kernow Santa Shoot event will take place next Sunday, 17 December, at the Star Inn, Vogue, St Day. Registration from 10.30 - 10.45, play to start as soon as possible afterwards.

It will be a melée - new teams are made up in each round, so you don't need to come as part of a team - and to keep things moving there will be four or five rounds of timed games. Open to all - bring your friends.

Refreshments will be available at the start, to warm us up, and please phone your orders for roast rolls to the pub in advance on 01209 820242. Do not bring your own refreshments to the Star.

If you are intending to play it would be useful if you would email Andrew or Graeme (email addresses on Contact us page), so that we know someone will be coming (!) and so we can make forward arrangements with the Star.

Ho ho ho!
