Petanque played at Club by Blind Veterans

Petanque is a sport that can be played by anyone, regardless of ability or disability. This point was proved on July 16th when the Club hosted a session for a group of blind veterans. None of them had played before but with a bit of guidance soon got the hang of it and a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
