Saint-Laurent de Céris, a small village in Charente, was the venue of the trial of the game between the two communities: French and British residents of the neighbourhood. The tournament was a good mix of new players – some complete beginners on the day and more experienced players.
This was the first leg and was organised by both our Association and the Oasis Nouv’l Association, a charity the aim of which is to help women in difficulties. The event took place at their shop and was won by the French team of 8 players, in perfect equality with the British side.
A few weeks later, on 28 July, at the request from the British players, a new session was arranged at the pleasant Arthé Café in Confolens and some players from the previous British team were again engrossed in the game after having trained seriously at the Saint Germain for some weeks before!
But unfortunately, being in the middle of the summer, there were not enough French players to match the number and allow for a revenge, so in the end guests played among themselves and enjoyed having a nice cup of tea with cakes as a consolation. However, the passion has not diminished and a return game will definitely happen, as the British team are now practicing regularly and are determined to win the next tournament! We will keep you informed on this site.
The venue may be Chabanais in the autumn, arrangements are being discussed at the moment. As local interest in the game continues to grow, it is expected that more players from both sides will take part to the challenge.
Don’t forget that you can order the game on the Internet in order to practice, thus becoming a real expert ( Paypal pay system on the site)!
