Currently (as at May 2021) membership is FREE – yes that is $0.00 per year! The Pétanque lanes are open during daylight hours for members to use. If you do not have your own Boules, club ones are available for you to use, but you will be required to pay a $10 deposit to get a members key to access them (outside of our Open Days).

Open Days – “Every” Sunday

Sunday afternoons are “open days” for anybody and everybody to come along and play. Never played before? Come and try it – free coaching is available.

Generally speaking, a session is held for children (4 – 12 years old) from 1pm to 2:30pm. After that, it is time for the adults to have a go! We are assuming that the weather will be suitable of course!

Having said that, the second Sunday of every month is a “Club Day” (see below).

Check our Facebook page for the latest updates!

Club Days

These are held on the second Sunday afternoon of each month, starting at 2pm. Mini-tournaments, spot prizes and a fun time are all part of the afternoon. Open to all club members – remember membership is FREE (as at May 2021).

Playing Area

Our playing area is bordered by wooden sleepers and is normally set to provide 5 lanes. However, it can be quickly adjusted to provide 4 international standard lanes.
