BEVERLEY PETANQUE CLUB (French Boules)

An opportunity to play French Boules (Pétanque) in Beverley

A group of enthusiasts from Beverley who have a passion for the game of Pétanque (French Boules) are hoping to form a new club in Beverley to encourage participation in the sport.  Many people will have observed the game being played all over France, Spain and Portugal whilst on holiday abroad and some may have tried the game for themselves.  Essentially it is a simple game where you try to outscore an opponent by leaving your metal ‘boule’ closer to the wooden ‘cochonnet’ (jack) which is thrown a distance of between 6 and 10 metres.  The modern game evolved in Provence just over 100 years ago and it is hoped that it will be included in the Paris Olympics in 2024.  The enthusiastic Beverley players all play regularly at Brandesburton Pétanque Club and are hoping to introduce the game to a greater number of players in the Beverley/Molescroft area.  A possible site for a terrain has been identified and the Beverley Pétanque Club now wish to gauge the local interest.  The game is suitable for all ages from 8 – 80 (plus!) and the club will be contacting local schools to encourage youngsters to get involved. 

If you would like to get involved please leave your name and contact details with Thierry Condette at TC Patisserie, Lairgate, BEVERLEY (Tel 07592 681418) or email Toni Mündel at acmtexltd00@aol.com
