Richmond upon Thames

Petanque 2

Weekly, alternate Sundays and Fridays at 2pm, Palewell Common, East Sheen, SW14 8RE

Group Leader: John Hockley

Petanque or French Boules, an easy game to learn the basics of but can be very challenging and great fun. Our friendly group invite those wishing to get some exercise throughout the whole year meeting likeminded players. Boules will be provided for new players, no other equipment needed just sensible shoes.

We have a stunning home ground within the beautiful Palewell Park, East Sheen SW14 with its café and other sports facilities.

This spring some of our group went to Richmond’s twin town of Fontainebleau, France to take part in their Boules Club 50th anniversary winning two cups to bring home. We play in the London Cup at Vauxhall and had the pleasure of advising the Chelsea Pensioners to set up their own terrain in The Royal Hospital grounds and playing a friendly competition there.
