The Boule Tournament

Of course the Landwehrkanal is a very popular area to hang out at when the sun is shining. One of it’s most beautiful marks is the Bouling Ground right at Forster Stra├če. Watching the water on one side and the relaxed players going after their game on the other side has a very hypnotizing effect on one’s mind (also, it gives the eye something to do instead of simply staring into empty space, as beautiful as it might be). Boule is a very classy sport. Whenever I pass by the players I keep thinking to myself: wow, this is the “savoir-vivre” everyone’s talking about.

Last weekend, the 1. BCK (“1. Boule Club Kreuzberg”) organized a Boule tournament including drinks and BBQ. It was a very calm and chilling environment to be part of. And along these lines, it’s also exciting to see what a few Boule fans can create: a whole community that revolves around a rare activity. It’s easy to appreciate the easy-going sport even when you’re not a player. In any case, as soon as the sun is out again (for good!) you’ll probably find us there, simply enjoying the scene.
