It’s very easy to learn the basics of pétanque and our clubs can get complete novices up and running in a short space of time. Before you know it, you will be pointing and shooting and getting that first win under your belt by getting a winning score of 13 points!
Although a very easy sport for people to start playing, there’s a lot more to pétanque than meets the eye – that’s where our coaches come in, teaching our members how to improve their technique, tactics and mental approach. How to hold a boule, stance, different ways to point and shoot, game play, deciding what the next best play should be and keeping calm under pressure are all part of perfecting your mastery of the sport.
Teamwork is a big part of pétanque and working with your playing partners is one of the most enjoyable parts. So many long-term friendships have been forged on a pitch.
