Bath Boules 2015: The Reside Retrospective

Bath Boules returned in 2015 with a bigger, better and more exciting tournament. Two sides of Queen Square were closed to traffic, and the roads lined with boutique food and drink stalls run by the likes of Yammo!, Pieminister and Masterchef champion Ping Coombes. The event, sponsored by a host of local businesses including Reside, proved a major success, drawing large crowds and raising valuable funds for local charities.

Warned by the Bath Boules staff that no team had ever won the competition two years running, the victorious 2014 Reside team crumbled under the pressure of the organisers’ mind games, losing the first game badly. A stern team talk later, and Team Reside was back on song, winning all seven of the remaining group ties. It was, alas, too little too late, as their first match opponents went on to win all eight of their games, thus knocking Reside out of the competition.

The Reside team were unable to repeat the heroics of their triumphant 2014 campaign, but a superb day was enjoyed by colleagues, family and friends. Congratulations to all involved for putting on such a wonderful few days’ entertainment, and to the winning Actual Experience team for pipping us to the post. We’ll be back to get you in 2016!
