A cold coming they had of it,
Just the worst time of the year
For a journey, and such a long journey:
The ways deep and the weather sharp,
The very dead of winter.

Biting winds had been forecast but in the event it was just a chilly, bright winter day. From the wilds of Rutland in the East, across the wastelands of North Leicestershire, three wily men came roaming. They came, they played, they conquered: Oakham RFC - more than a rugby club!

at Oakham RFC















The second Winter League event was held at the all brand spanking new Oakham RFC and RAS facilities on the north side of Burley Park Way at Lands End Way. On a chilly but sunny day we were warmly welcomed by the local petanque club and the Rutland League Committee
A great day of petanque was played out against an uplifting background babble of other recreational endeavours
Such are the vagaries of our fascinating sport that neither of the teams which dished out 13-0 fannies won the day, neither of their victims finished last and the winning team's results included a 1-13 loss
This enviably appointed venue is certain to feature prominently on the petanque calendar for years to come
