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 February FSM Pennant results ended up as a family affair with Robyn and Mark being the best performers on the day. After 3 months of FSM Catherine is on top of the leaderboard for the ladies, and Storm and Ivo are on equal second for the blokes.

A couple of things to remember for March 5th. First is that from that date we go back to 2:00pm starts on a Sunday, secondly there will be a farewell for Kim, Storm, Celeste and Bruce starting at 1pm before play starts, and lastly our FSM pennant is also on that day.
