Petanque in Plymouth started in a very small way in the summer of 2014 when around half a dozen complete novices armed with nothing but their holiday boules and loads of enthusiasm met on a weekly basis to play on the paths a of a very small park just off Mutley Plain. Later that year a purpose built single piste was constructed by Plymouth City Council in the nearby park at Freedom Fields. The group transferred their weekly games to this new site and numbers started to increase. It very soon became apparent that a larger terrain would be needed and that, perhaps, we should form a proper club.

In July 2015 Plymouth Petanque was formed and we moved into our new home at Brickfields Sports Centre in Devonport. Here, where the centre had provided us with a six piste terrain, the club has quickly grown to it's present position with around 60 members and twice weekly sessions.

We meet for social games every Sunday and Wednesday afternoons throughout the year with an average attendance of around 25 to 30 players. These sessions are eminently suitable for new players as we play to basic rules with the emphasis being on fun rather than competition (and we always break off halfway through for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat!)

For those players who like a more competitive element to their game we also have a team competing in the Devon Petanque League and there are also opportunities to play in other tournaments across the region.


New players are always welcome. You don't need to have played before....we will show you everything you need to know and we can lend you a set of boules to start you off.  Contact Rob  01752 240495 for further information.
