The Boules Blitz 2016


Frankfield, Pétanque, Cork


The 2016 Frankfield Boules Blitz will be held over the weekend of 27-28 Aug 2016.

The ‘Blitz’ continues to attract players from England, Wales and France, as well as from Ireland North and South. The weekend has always been most enjoyable, along with keen competition throughout. We welcome players of every standard and from all clubs. Those of you who have competed in the past, will know that Day One is a qualifier, with the results determining which competition each double will be in on Day Two – the aim being, to have teams in a competition of their own standard on Day Two.

Depending on entry numbers, Day Two will have two, three or four competitions.

Prizes for the weekend will be very attractive, with €300 and the Perpetual Shield for the winning double in the premier competition of Day Two, The Complete Cuisine Gold Shield’, and as always, great prizes down the line.

In the second competition on Day Two, ‘The Frankfield Open Doubles Cup’. the winning double will receive the Perpetual Cup and a big cash prize, and again, great prizes down the line.

The Format:

  1. Teams come to Frankfield as doubles and compete on Day One in a round robin qualifier which will determine which competition they are in on Day Two. Day Two will also be a round robin for each of the two/three/four competitions and will culminate in play-offs for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the top competitions.

Final details will be published at the start of Day One, along with score sheets etc. As always, on each day, each double will select a sealed envelope which will contain their draw for the day.

  1. There will be a special prize of €100 for the top scoring mixed double. This prize is confined to qualifiers in the premier competition,’The Complete Cuisine Gold Shield’. It will be awarded to the top mixed double in the premier competition, regardless of their placing in that competition.

Do Note: no double can win more than one prize. 

  1. Entry fee is €30 per double.

Please let us have your entry by e-mail or phone to the Secretary not later than 1 August 2016. However, it would be very helpful for us to have early indication of interest.
