The Waterfront unveiled the new court earlier this month, replacing the children’s urban beach which had been there over the summer.

A free-to-use winter time activity, open seven days a week from 9am-6pm, Petanque sets are available for full use and hire from 4 Seasons Brasserie with a £5 deposit.

It comes as part of the Waterfront 2019 events programme, which will see the marina become a hive of activity this autumn and winter as events will run right through until December.
