Newbury Rotary Boules in the Square

Newbury Rotary Club is looking forward to their seventh annual ”Boules in the Square” event 10am – 4pm Sunday 9 June when Newbury Marketplace is transformed into sand boules pistes. 

It is an opportunity for Newbury-based businesses, charities and residents to have a fun day in a competitive spirit with friends and colleagues, raising money for Rotary’s “End Polio Now” campaign and the Rotary Club of Newbury’s current main charity, The West Berkshire Therapy Centre and other Rotary nominated charities.

Come and enjoy a this community initiative organised by the Rotary Club of Newbury and endorsed by both Newbury Town Councils’ Leisure and Entertainment committee, and Newbury BID. 

Why not get involved, enter a team and perhaps even lift the winner’s trophy? Those who played last year had a great time and the competitive spirit seems to be set for rematches this year. Bring your friends and family and chill out in the local outlets between matches.
