  1. The French game of Petanque (or boules) has come to Firth Park in Heckmondwike with a new council-built court. It is a game similar to Crown Green bowls, but with steel balls which are thrown rather than rolled. Light exercise. Some strategic elements. A very tactile and sociable game.

    We play Saturday from 10am to mid afternoon and Wednesday from 1pm to 5pm; and some open events where other northern clubs attend. Also some social matches with other clubs, and Northern League competitions.
    Bring your group and try a coffee & petanque morning, afternoon or evening. We will provide all equipment and advice to help you have a fun couple of hours as a group.

    We play all year round, weather permitting. Please see our website or contact us for more details.
