Hello and Welcome to :-
Abergavenny Petanque Club
Important Notice Updated 19/10/2020
The Welsh Government announced further changes to the lockdown rules on 19th. October 2020.
The Changes involve a short, sharp “circuit breaker” or “fire-break” being introduced across Wales to help regain control of coronavirus.
This means that a series of restrictive measures will be in place from 6pm Friday 23 October until the start of Monday 9 November 2020.
As result of these changes Abergavenny Petanque Club will have to suspend all play until Monday 09 November 2020 when it is hoped we get get up and running again.
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.
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.
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.
