Southampton City Petanque Club Telephone: 02380 324803E-Mail: [email protected]Website: www.scpc.org.uk Petanque is a form of boules where the goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet while standing inside a starting circle with both feet on the ground. The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel, but can also be played on grass, sand or other surfaces. The Southampton Petanque Club offers membership of a small, friendly club - we try to take our league matches reasonably seriously, especially in the 9-a-side league, but we also try to stick with the original spirit of the 6-a-side league to use it to introduce newer players to competitive play in as relaxed and supportive a way as we can. For anyone who wants to come and give the game a try, we have some spare sets of boules available until they have decided if they want to take it up (but its best to contact one of us before you turn up so that someone can bring a spare set along for you!).
