Christmas Lunch - December 2022

The Club's annual Christmas Lunch was held on Tuesday 13th December at the Monkey Brewhouse pub in Lymington. Great fun which brought a successful year to a close!

Summer Celebration Fiesta - July 2022

Since Pétanque is popular throughout Europe, Spain was the theme of our Summer Celebration last year. So it was sombreros, maracas and lace fans which appeared out of the fancy dress box and for the tortilla to be washed down with chilled cava. Being the hottest day of the year, the event was held in the evening. Pat won the smash the egg competition with a deft toss of her boule.

Lymington Pétanque came second to New Milton!

OK that's a nice way to say we lost! Nine members of Lymington Pétanque plus a couple of supporters travelled to an away match with New Milton on 6th June 2022.  

Judith and Sheilagh looked on as the Lymington team of Jim, John, Glynis, Glenda, Les, Alec, Pat, Ruth and Ron (left to right) raised their game but to little avail. Great fun in the sunshine nonetheless and for some a welcome drink afterwards in the pub opposite the terrain.

Theatre Outing 

In April, one of our members, Bev Harris performed in Milton Musical Society's 'Chess the Musical' as the Arbiter's Assistant who referees the match.  

Sir Tim Rice, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus from Abba had created a musical where the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics, and international intrigues. The score included 'One Night in Bangkok',  'I Know Him so Well', 'Heaven Help My Heart', 'Nobody’s Side', 'Someone Else’s Story” and 'Anthem'.
