Ball Games have been played for many centuries throughout Europe. There is little doubt that the game played by Drake as he waited for the Spanish Armada was far more like Petanque than the game known today by the English as Bowls. The rules are simple and the game is easy. The Petanque Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 11.00am. We normally stop for lunch at about 1.00pm and play throughout the year though numbers can get a bit low in the worst weather. Numbers are limited by the size of the playing area.
Whilst we all like to play well the emphasis of the group is social rather than serious.
