Pétanque

Evesham Workman Gardens has 3 pétanque courts which were constructed in the summer of 2006.

Pétanque is played throughout the British Isles. It is a sport for all ages and both sexes, it is classless and can be played by wheelchair users.

The concept of the game of pétanque 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, pétanque is played on an easily maintained area of fairly level 'stony' ground, with metal boule rolled or tossed to the jack.

Please Note: The pétanque courts are for everyone to use.  However, league matches take priority over other use.  See notice board on site for league times.

More information available on the Evesham pétanque website.
