Team Building Tuesdays


The success of any organisation comes down to its people and their ability to build and work in an effective team. Team building events improve motivation and productivity. Taking your employees out of their working environment helps them interact differently, eliminates workplace distractions, so they have fun while helping them become a more effective team, driving your organisation’s success.


At The Cottage Pub in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich, we offer unique team-building evenings on a Tuesday night with the help of our resident Pétanque club.


Pétanque is a form of boules where the goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally "piglet") or jack. The current form of the game originated in 1907 in La Ciotat, in Provence, in southern France. It is a game that is suited to all ages and abilities and is accessible to disabled people who compete against non-disabled people at all levels of the game.


How the evening works:


The evening starts with a short drinks reception and a quick briefing on how to play the game of Pétanque, before moving outside to our on-site Pétanque terrain.


Norwich Pétanque club will provide a qualified coach and experienced players to show your employees how to play this unusual game before splitting them up into teams for a competition. All equipment is provided.


Afterwards, you sit down to a two or three course meal (chosen in advance) from our extensive menu, if you prefer a hot or cold buffet can be provided, all in our separate function area which you will have all to yourselves.


Cost per person varies depending on numbers, so for a quote please contact The Cottage on 01603 433444 to enquire and book.
