National Coach Mags Montgomery accompanied by three other SPA coaches made the short journey to the newly created pistes in Rosefield Park, Portobello, on Sunday 25 November. Despite the weather (low temperatures and heavy rain) 7 hardy souls from Porty turned up and were introduced to the game.
Portobello’s pétanque roots are strong. Although it has been some time since there was a club there, a number of former and current international players have played in Portobello and we are encouraged to see that pétanque has once again returned. Naturally the SPA will be on hand to offer them support and advice whenever needed.
The SPA would like to wish all those involved the very best of luck . You can find out more at the group’s Facebook page
