Petanque

Sandra Jones and Ros Blake

Petanque is both a fun social activity and a competitive sport.  It can be played in the backyard, a park and competitively up to world championship level.  Petanque is played on a Piste.

It is a game for everyone, where grandparents and children can play on equal terms, as neither age, gender nor ability matter.

All that is required is an area of firm ground, a set of metal balls, called boules, a jack, called a cochonnet and, most importantly, a sense of fun.

In each session participants will learn and practice a specific skill and then play a game of singles, doubles or triples.

There will be an opportunity to travel to Burnie for a social competition with the Burnie Petanque Club.

PLEASE NOTE. The first week is for new starters, previous players should attend from the second session onward.
