Botany Bay Pétanque Club

Petanque2 940x198

A very warm welcome and thank you for visiting our webpage. Pétanque, which is sometimes called boules, is a sport that is enjoyed by all the family. It can be played for fun in the garden, or more seriously, within a club up to Regional, National, European and World Championship level.

Botany Bay Pétanque Club is a very friendly club with over 40 members, where we play both social and competitive pétanque. With our increasing membership, we have just built a second piste, which will give us an additional three lanes to pay on. We meet on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:30am until about lunchtime. Club members are also able to use the pistes for playing boules at other times during the week as well. There is also a competitive melee, comprising four half-hour timed games, every second Sunday of the month, starting at 10:30am, throughout the year. There are prizes for the three highest scoring players each month and a special trophy is awarded to the overall winner at the end of the year.

We also play in the Chiltern Region Pennant Mid Week League. League matches are played Tuesday or Wednesday evenings during the summer.

Our members will be happy to welcome you and help you get started. No experience is necessary and we can even provide you with boules. If you have any questions, would like to find out more, or, maybe, join us for a game and a chat, please enter your details in the 'Get in touch' box on the left. We look forward to hearing from you.
