Hello and Welcome to :-
Abergavenny Petanque Club
Important Notice Updated 07/09/2020
The Welsh Government announced further changes to the lockdown rules from Monday 13th July 2020.
These changes allowed larger gathering of up to 30 people outdoors where these are organized for sports and other leisure activities.
As a result of this Abergavenny Petanque Club is holding it's Practice sections on Monday and Thursday afternoons and continuing with it's Monthly Melee Programme, all be it in a different format to comply with social distancing.
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.
