Welcome to the Towers Petanque Website
Set in the picturesque grounds of Brookweald Cricket Club, adjacent to the entrance of Weald Country Park, offering a unique combination of sporting & social facilities, our club organises competitions, coaching and many fun events throughout the year.
Petanque (often called Boules) is a sport open to all ages and abilities, there are no boundaries and we are able to offer fantastic facilities with no access restrictions and ample parking, The concept of the game of Petanque is simple and similar to bowls, i.e. resting your boule closer to the jack than your opponent. However, instead of rolling wooden bowls over an immaculately maintained lawn, Petanque is played on an easily maintained area of fairly level ‘stony’ ground, with the metal boule rolled or tossed to the jack.
It can be played purely as a social game or with varying degrees of competitiveness up to international standard. At the Towers Pétanque Club we have players who have represented England and won National competitions, but the majority play just for fun or, for those a little more competitive, in local leagues.
New players are always very welcome. We have a club night every Tuesday at 8:00pm and everyone joins in for a friendly evening, new players are matched up with more experienced members so they rapidly pick up the game and have a little coaching at the same time. We play throughout the year thanks to our floodlit pitches and have an undercover floodlit terrain for those wet and snowy evenings, that’s how dedicated (or slightly mad!!!) the members are.
We have a selection of boules to start you off, and give you advice on what to buy once you are ready for the next step into competitions, please click on the link to see about joining the club or just turn up on a Tuesday evening at 8pm and give it a go, you will be bouling and having fun for many years.
We also host Social Evenings for clubs, groups or local companies to enjoy an evening with a bit of fun and a little tuition if required.
