Three-Way Festival of Petanque

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th July 2022
Suffolk Coastal v Mercia v CJB Middelburg (Holland)

As I am sure your Captains have already told you following the Leagues Rep Meeting a few months back, we have our friends from Mercia Region visiting us as well as our dear friends from CJB Middelburg coming over to Suffolk on the weekend of 9th/10th July.

On the Saturday, we are planning a three-way match between us, Mercia and Middelburg and are looking for 40 Coastal players to take part. Those that have been on the Belgium/Holland trips and those that have played against Mercia in the past will get first option to play as a reward for supporting us. There will be a £5 per player charge for taking part in this event (to Coastal players only) to cover venue costs, prizes/gifts etc. This will be held indoors at The Martley Hall Stud at Easton.

Sunday will be an entirely different format whereby firstly it will be FREE to take part, but the specific format and detail is currently being discussed, and this event will be held at The Meadlands in Stowmarket.

We plan to announce the two venues over this weekend so that people can start to make arrangements.

So that you know, our Dutch friends arrive on Friday and return home on the Monday whilst we believe some of the Mercia team are staying over locally for the weekend itself.

If you want to take part in the Saturday or Sunday or both days, then please email me at
