Playing petanque through the autumn and winter
As summer moves into autumn and the chill gets in the air after a long hot summer many players look to winter leagues or just storing their boule until the spring. However there is plenty still going on. On our web site we have an events page. It is used by us to plan where we are playing through the season but it is also published to help old and new players of petanque. Many players use this page as a guide to what is happening across the country and beyond. The sport can be a little intimidating at first for new players taking up the sport and it could be fine playing in your garden and down the local pub or piste in the park. However, if you want to sharpen your skills then playing in open competitions could be the way forward. Our listings provide contact details for entry to these competitions but more importantly venue addresses. You may not want to commit to a full days play and just want to pop along and watch. I know we all love playing but watching the sport can be very interesting to give you a feel of your own play and standards. The petanque crowd are a lovely bunch of people and I am sure you are welcome to ask questions about the game, not when the players are playing! But, pick your moment and you will get friendly advice. Please feel free to visit our events page, its free! If you need any other information about the sport please give us a ring or drop us an email.
