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.

Wollongong Petanque Club will visit on October 30th with play starting at 10:30am.

There will be Saturday games at the Tuggeranong Town Park on November 12th and 19th with play starting at 2pm.

It will be a big day for our club on Sunday 27th of November. Our AGM will be held at noon, there will be drinks and nibbles at about 1pm to celebrate the first birthday of our piste at Weston Park, and a club competition starting at about 2pm. All these activities will be held in Weston Park.
