About our Club
Although we are a new club, as players we've been around for years. Now we've come together to form our our own club taking over the men's bowling green and pavilion at Western Park, Leicester in November 2020.
We've formed a Petanque Club that involves the local community and surrounding areas to offer:
Coaching and development
Social interaction and community involvement
We are the largest purpose built facility in Leicestershire and have up to 24 floodlit terrains of various surfaces to test your ability. With our own private clubhouse and licensed members bar, we offer you a warm welcome whether you are a seasoned pro or just want to come and try your hand.
Come and join our club and get involved in as much or as little as you want to. You can be a member of another Petanque Club and still join our club.
We play competitively and socially and we advise our players to purchase an East Midlands Regional Petanque Licence in order to play Regionally and Nationally
Social play will recommence when Covid-19 restrictions
We will keep you updated about our playing Calendar
All of our coaches are Fully DBS checked
We are a member of East Midlands Petanque Association and registered as a Club with Petanque England
