Kent Petanque Association
Pétanque in Kent is a much bigger sport than most people would imagine, with several different leagues in operation in the County.
Kent Pétanque League is, by some way, the largest pétanque league in the country.
Pétanque is a game which can be readily played successfully by young and old, men and women. Juniors, under the age of 18, play in many of the teams in the League and in this regard pétanque is a recreation which enjoys an almost unique family element in a competitive environment.
Our league season lasts from April through to September and matches are played on Wednesday nights with most clubs having a practice night, usually Tuesdays. Turning up on a league night will at least allow you to find out about joining the clubs.
In addition many Clubs run open competitions which normally take place on Sundays and details of some of those will be included in this website.
The majority of clubs operate from pubs, though there are several in Sports and Social Clubs also in the league.
The pétanque terrain (piste) is usually open to the public, on non-club nights, free of charge and in many clubs boules can be hired very cheaply for you to try out the sport.
The vast majority of clubs welcome new players and most will take time to teach newcomers the basics of the game.
