About Norwich Petanque Club

The club is run as an organisation to enable people to play the game of petanque, or Boules, either competitively or as a friendly relaxing game for all

The Norwich Pétanque Club is the longest established club in the Anglia Region having been formed in 1979 at the request, and with the co-operation of the Sports and Leisure department of the Norwich City Council. The Club ran for the first year at the Norman Centre in Norwich, after which it moved to The Cottage public house in Thorpe, where it has remained ever since, becoming one of the biggest in the area.

Members of the Club have been instrumental in helping new clubs to get under way in Norfolk, Suffolk and even Cambridgeshire. Over the years its players have been at the forefront in competitions at all levels. Its League participation has grown, and it is currently the only club to be represented by five teams in the Darby Rosettes Norfolk League and its associated Knockout Shield competition.

The Club stages six open competitions during each year at The Cottage, as well as internal events and a number of County and Regional competitions.

The Club has also hosted two inter-County matches – against Leicestershire and the Chilterns – both of which were won by Norfolk.

The Club sends a party of players to other parts of the country to play, in 2012 the trip was to West Sussex, the trip is a mixture of playing boules and visiting the local area. In the past we have visited places such as the Isle of Wight and the island of Jersey.
