Captial Petanque Canberra Logo

We are a group of Petanque players who live in Canberra with a keen interest in playing and promoting this beautiful, relaxing and social French bowling game.

Petanque (pronounced P-Tank) can be played by anybody both male and female, young and old and you do not have to be athletic to play this game well.

Equipment costs are minimal, all you need is three boules (metal balls) and you are ready to play. Petanque is best played on a compacted gravel surface.

The aim of the game is to throw and place your boules as close to a jack (the cochonnet) as possible, and by doing so scoring points. It is as simple as that.

We can provide the boules for the first few times that you come along and play with us.

The December results for our First Sunday of the Month (FSM) pennant competition are Seb leading and Richard and Storm equal second in the mens, and Lois leading and Adeline and Catherine in equal second place in the ladies.

Play on Sundays start at 5pm for the summer months (December, January and February) and at 9am for our ladies on Wednesdays.

There will be Saturday games at the Tuggeranong Town Park on the 10th and 17th of December starting at 5:00pm.
