Glasgow Petanque Club

We are a friendly boules club located in the West End within the grounds of Willow Bank Bowling Club. Petanque is a sociable game for people of all ages and abilities and our members play at all levels for fun, fresh air and exercise. For those who like to compete more seriously there is a local league, competitions at other clubs as well as national events. We are members of the growing Scottish Petanque Association (SPA) which as our sporting body offers opportunities to represent Scotland at International events.

The club was formed in the Spring of 2018 with 90% of current members being new to the game and are therefore learning together. We have 5 pistes measuring 3m x 13m. If you would like to find out more then please contact the GPC Secretary at secretary@glasgowpetanque.co.uk or call in to one of our weekly sessions.

New Members

We welcome visitors and guests at our regular Thursday morning sessions from 11:00am and Sunday afternoons from 14:00. Prior to joining the club you can come and try for 3 sessions during which you’re fully covered by our insurance, unfortunately after this you’ll either need to join or say goodbye. Training and coaching is available within the club with all new members receiving a quick induction into the sport and given advice on where to buy boule.

Social

Refreshments are always available and members are welcome to come along for a chat even if they’re not playing. As associate members of the Bowling club we also attend functions such as quizzes and band nights.

Competitions

As well as our regular sessions we also have a calendar of events throughout the year. Each month we have a friendly club melee competition which gives opportunities to play with different members of the club.

Maintenance

Maintaining our terrains and surrounds involves regular work parties to muck in weeding and tidy up and so on. Wherever possible our members do all routine maintenance and volunteers are always welcome, from leaf-sweeping to carpentry.
