Hello and Welcome to :-
Abergavenny Petanque Club
The Welsh Government (WG) has announced a relaxing of the lockdown rules from Monday 22nd June.
It has been confirmed that pétanque is covered under the list of sports allowed to open – subject to the travel restrictions and the adherence to the guidelines.
As a result, Abergavenny Petanque Club will be restarting our Practice Afternoons on Mondays and Thursdays from Thursday 25 June 2020, play at this time will be in line with the WPA set of Guidelines for Clubs and for Players.
If you wish to view the Guildlines you can do so on the W.P.A. Web Site which can be found on our Web Site Links page
Our home terrain is situated in Abergavenny's main public park, Bailey Park, and has space for 16 pistes, which can be separated in various ways.
The terrain, upgraded in 2017 with new gravel, is well used, particularly on club nights and during summer league competitions where "open terrain" is used.
It is perhaps one of the best Pétanque terrains in Wales with further facilities available in the adjoining pavilion.
We have 3 teams playing in the Boules In Gwent (B.I.G.) League, and are affiliated to the Welsh Petanque Association (W.P.A.) over the years we hosted many Welsh Qualifying Competitions and a number of our members have played for Wales in international competitions.
The Club has 5, W.P.A. Coaches, 6, C.R.B. Checked, 4, First Aiders, 6, Boccia England Coaches and have obtained a Insport Accreditation Award.
We have weekly practice afternoons on Thursdays starting at 1:30pm and out of the B.I.G. league season we also have them on Monday Afternoons, starting at 1:30pm and Monday evenings starting at 6:30pm.
Also once a month we hold a 3 game club melee competition on Saturdays.
Petanque is a bowling activity and is suitable for wheelchair users. The terrain is accessible for all disability sports groups but The Old Pavilion is not yet wheelchair accessible.
Recently we have been delivering sessions with local community group Building Bridges that regularly bring groups of young people down to have a game.
As the terrain is in a public park, there are no opening hours. If you would like to join the club please see our membership page for further details or if fancy a game with or against us, please get in touch through our Club Contacts page.
