Come and try petanque
Family friendly for all ages and fitness levels, Petanque is a fun game that can be as competitive or social as you would like it to be.
There are local, state, national and international competitions in the sport, including masters games.
Time commitment required is your choice - play as infrequently or often as you like, depending on your needs. Note however that it is addictive!
All equipment necessary to play is available from our club.
The club play days are every Wednesday of the month. The session starts at 15:00.
Also, every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 10:00. Training is available on Wednesdays preceding the Saturday playday commencing at 14:00 under the guidance of the coach. Some days may be cancelled if the weather is unforgiving, ie due to excessive rain or heat.
The play days are used for friendly social competitions and occasional coaching sessions.
There is no commitment to attend every play day as teams are drawn on the day from those that attend.
Some members of the club form into teams of doubles or triples to compete in other competitions throughout the year within Victoria or interstate.
