Wilton Bridge Petanque Club opened in April 2021 at the Ross-on-Wye Sports Centre. There are eleven all-weather gravel pistes which allow year-round play in an attractive sportsground setting. Toilets and other facilities are available in the Centre nearby.
Interested persons are invited to come along to a Club Session to try the sport out. Our experienced members are very pleased to explain the game to beginners. Freelance sessions are also available to those who have played before. You can play three times before completing the application form and paying the annual subscription. Please click here for the form.
Applicants agree to abide by the Club Guidelines which are posted on the website here.
The Club is registered and insured with Petanque England, the National Governing Body for our sport. We are represented on the Community Interest Company that manages the Sports Centre.
What is Petanque?
News and Events
Petanque is pronounced pay-tank and is also known as boules. It is a favourite national pastime in France and can be enjoyed by all abilities, from those who just want a relaxed social game to others who want to compete at club, regional or international level.
A target ball, called a cochonnet or “coch”, is thrown down the piste first. Then the players compete to throw their boules nearest to the coch and score points towards a total of 13.
