Boules in Gwent
Welcome to the website of the Boules in Gwent League
Message from the league secretary and chairman, January 13th
“First and foremost, Shun and I hope you have had a safe and peaceful Xmas and New year. We also wish everyone a happier 2021!
Notwithstanding that playing boules maybe the last thing on your mind at the moment, you will recall that last June we informed you that the 2020 BIG season had to be cancelled due to the impact of the pandemic . In the meantime, websites of the national associations of Wales (WPA) and England (EPA) have monitored developments for their members and where appropriate resumed playing arrangements during 2020. This has involved compliance with COVID legislation and restrictions/protocols surrounding guidance for clubs, including risk assessments, as well as play safe guidelines affecting player welfare.
It would normally be around this time of year that we approach clubs for their intentions in participating in the new BIG season due to start in April. Needless to say, the pandemic will dictate any future plans for a resumption of playing activities. This may involve looking at other options such as a shortened season.
However, given the long break since the end of the 2019 season, it would be useful to have any recent feedback involving your club, your intentions in continuing to participate in the league , and provide uptodate contact/piste numbers. We welcome Ponthir Cricket Club as a new member.
In the meantime, we will explore video participation options for an AGM meeting - normally scheduled for March.”
