Brassington has 2 boules teams, Team A and Team B, affiliated to The Gate pub. Both teams have been established for several years playing in the Derbyshire League at various levels. The season runs from April-September and play takes place on Sunday evenings between 6-9pm whatever the weather! On each Sunday one team will be playing at The Gate whilst the other plays away, so why not pop down to The Gate one Sunday to see what it's all about. New members are always welcome and it's a great way to visit pubs you may not have visited before, along with meeting a bunch of friendly boules players!
