We are now finished for the winter. We start back May 2018

Pétanque started in the South of France in 1907 and now millions play this most popular version of boules worldwide.

Pétanque is an extremely inclusive sport that can be played equally by both men and women irrespective of age, physical fitness or ability.

We play every Thursday evening from 6.30pm and all are welcome to come along.  We are a friendly group of people who enjoy playing the game, and then having a social drink at the local bar later.

How We Play

The basic rules are simple and easy to learn. However, pétanque is an exciting, skilful and highly tactical team game, although luck often has a part to play!
