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 of about 30 members, where we play both social and competitive pétanque. We meet every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:30am until about lunchtime. A monthly singles tournament with matches played at a time convenient to participating players recently introduced. There is also a competitive melee, with prizes for the three highest scoring players, is held every second Sunday of the month, starting at 10:30am, throughout the year.

We also usually play in the Chiltern Region Pennant Mid Week League. League matches are played Tuesday or Wednesday evenings, although we are not participating this year.

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.
