We have finally moved to our new location, just 10mns walk from our old location in North Hagley Park. The entrance is off Riccarton Avenue and parking is available in the public car park.

Christchurch City Council has built us an outstanding new ( international standard ) terrain on the grounds of the former United Bowls Club. We share our clubhouse with HSOB Rugby and United Croquet Club.

Petanque in New Zealand is known as 'the friendliest game in town' ... a great opportunity for people of all ages to participate in a healthy outdoor activity, and to meet new friends in a safe and friendly social environment.

Christchurch Petanque Club has over 65 enthusiastic members and is conveniently located in North Hagley Park, Christchurch. Our facilities include an extensive playing terrain and excellent club house facilities. The club is very active playing and promoting the game in Canterbury and welcomes new players and visitors.

We play both socially and competitively but most importantly, we have fun. So i
f you want to find out why Petanque is one of the fastest growing participant sports in the world, take a trip down to North Hagley Park and see what it is all about. 

It doesn't matter if you've never played before, you will be made very welcome and be provided with an easy introduction to the game by our friendly coaching team. All ages are welcome but we do ask that under 16's be accompanied by an adult.

We play every Thursday from 1.00pm and every Sunday from 10.00am. Your first three visits are completely free, with boules provided ... and if you decide to join the club you will be delighted to learn that it only costs $60 per year for adults and $20 for Juniors (under 18). Fantastic value !
