Petanque - Funny Name, Great Game!

Being French nothing sounds as it looks!

The game is petanque = P'tonk
Played with steel boules = boul
On a stony piste = peest
With a cochonnet = coshonay ('cosh')

Petanque is a great game. Started over 100 years ago in French villages it's now played by millions across the world. See it being played in our short video. It's good for any age and gender, easy to learn and even play well. Play at the Club on Wednesdays, Friday evenings under brilliant new lights and Saturday afternoons. Scroll down to 'When Do We Play' for details.

Why So Good

It's outdoors, healthy and active. It's a game you can enjoy playing with your partner. It requires strategy and keeps your mind alert. It's social, you get out, you make new friends and you can even have a glass of wine between games. Enough said? And it’s different from what everyone else is doing!


Covid Safe

Petanque is played outdoors and it's easy to keep 1.5m distance. It is a non-contact sport and you don't share equipment with others. The clubhouse comfortably holds around 100 people so there's plenty of room to spread out. All these benefits mean it is low regarding Covid concerns.
