Information

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.

Ursula Feltham
Duke of Wellington PC

The Duke of Wellington Petanque Club is deeply saddened to report the passing of our dear friend Ursula Feltham on 17th March, aged 80. A longstanding member of the Kent petanque community, Ursula was an active member of the Ditton, George and Istead Rise clubs before joining the Duke in 2015. With her ready smile and gentle humour, allied to a fine pointing ability, Ursula was always a popular team mate and companion. She will be fondly remembered by all at the Duke. Our deepest sympathies go out to Ron and family at this sad time.
Ursula’s funeral will be held at Aylesford Priory on Monday 11th April at 12 noon.
