What equipment do I need?
The good news is that you only need a few Pétanque balls to get started. If you don't have your own yet, don't worry as we have spares you can borrow.
Where do you play?
Our 'home piste' (Trafford's only Boulodrome) is situated in Victoria park, Stretford. You can view our Boulodrome on Google Maps.
What are the current members like?
Trafford Pétanque was establish by two young Pétanque enthusiasts who are keen to promote the sport here in the UK. So far, we have attracted International talent as well as people who are new to the sport. Our goal is to make everybody feel welcome what ever your level. So, grab some steel and rock up.
Do I need a team kit?
It's not essential but there's nothing like feeling part of a team. Therefore, we have official high quality Puma branded & sponsored team kits.
How much does it cost?
In 2016, Trafford Pétanque relied on donations to help improve the quality of the piste, make repeairs and allowed the club to buy more equipment. However, for 2018, we want to go beyond our wildest dreams build a great club for all to enjoy. Therefore, our annual membership is set at £14 per calendar year.
When do you play?
Currently, during the winter months and limited daylight, we play every Saturday morning, plus at ad hoc times when people are free. This coming spring, will see the return of our regular Monday night session, as well as more ad hoc matches.
Does it get competitive?
Although there is a social aspect to our game and everybody has fun, we are keen to develop overall skills, ability and discipline. Consequently, when we enter national competitions we hope to destroy our opponents in style.Sounds great, sign me up
