This sponsorship is a big step forward to us and we are very grateful to the Box brewery for their help and support with this sponsorship”.

Speaking for the brewery, South West Regional Manager Barney Waspe, pictured in the photograph with club members, said “ As well as being passionate about creating distinctive craft beers with taste and character, we’re also massive fans of pétanque at our brewery in Holt, near Bradford on Avon. We’re delighted to support Filton Pétanque Club and proud to sponsor the club’s new polo shirts.”
