Other Activities - Petanque


A genteel sport, ideal for those lazy, hazy, summer evenings.The concept is similar to bowls with metal boules rolled or tossed to the jack.We have a new shingled terrain with pavilion and floodlighting. The Club hosts inter-club matches and members play in a club league.

We have an established Petanque section at the Risbygate Sports Club, with a teams competing in both the Newmarket and the Bury District leagues, on Monday and Wednesday nights respectively, throughout the Summer season.

The popularity of the sport, which can played by all ages and physique, has resulted in a pleasing increase in our membership recently. This has justified the construction of a larger Terrain (playing area) with a pavilion and toilets adjacent.

The Club has Bar and Kitchen facilities, together with the opportunity to view and maybe sample the other sports available.

We are always seeking to grow our section, so if you would like to form a team for league games or maybe just join for a friendly game, please contact us to discuss membership and any other queries you may have.
