Jacqueline Newton

Pétanque (or French boules) can be played by anyone, even if you are in a wheelchair or need a cane to support you. As long as you have one good arm to throw a boule, you will be able to play. The aim of the group is to have fun in the outdoors without worrying too much about skill levels, and perhaps prepare you for your summer holidays. 

The Pétanque group meets all year round, not playing only when it is very cold, or very wet, or both.  No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided.

Please contact the convener for further information, or if you would like to join the Pétanque group.
