Mansfield Petanque Club was set up in 2009 as part of an existing group who wanted some outdoor exercise. It has been in its present form since July 2010 and continues to develop as new members join and it reaches out to the wider petanque community. At the end of 2014, the club had 74 members.
The club is affiliated to the English Petanque Association and a number of the members hold EPA licences, this allows those members to play in competitions at both regional and national level. We regularly play against our neighbouring clubs in both the Sherwood Shield and Mercia winter league. The club also fields three teams in the Thursday Petanque doubles league that runs throughout the summer months.
The club welcomes new members of all ages and plays regularly four times a week throughout the year.
For those of you who wish to come along and try this very addictive sport, please come to one of our social sessions. We have spare boule at the club and would be pleased to show you how to play the game.
