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.

October 7th, 8th and 9th are the dates for a visit by a PFA accredited coach and umpire, who will run a series of coaching sessions for all our members. Please contact Catherine ASAP if you would like to participate.

The times for Saturday games at the Tuggeranong Town Park are October 8th and 15th with play starting at 2pm.
