  Welcome to the Petanque New Zealand Website

  Pétanque is a game that originated in France and has been played for more than 100 years in countries
  around the world. It's a truly simple game that is easy to understand and enjoy, and b
eginners pick up
  the rules and basic strategies very quickly.

  It is a wonderfully social game and new players soon get hooked as they learn to understand the
  strategies of competitive play at club, regional, national and international level.

  The sport is enjoyed by both men and women and it appeals to players of all ages. It is inexpensive to
  play and there are over 45 clubs spread around New Zealand. Check out the list on the right for a club
  near you. You'll find friendly welcoming people at each of the clubs, and they all have plenty of boules
  available for you to 'give it a go' at little or no cost. Check out the PNZ Introduction To Petanque by
