Napier City Petanque Club

If you would like to meet new people, get some fresh air and have fun in a friendly and positive environment then come and join us.  We can provide practice boules for you and there’s free tea and coffee available as well as friendly tuition if needed.  We have full kitchen and toilet facilities. Your first two or three visits are free and if you like it you can join for $55 per year.

We play all year on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 1pm till around 3pm, usually 3 games with time out for refreshments.  Many members simply play socially, but we have club tournaments for the more competitive.  Our major tournament is the Hawke’s Bay Classic Open Doubles, usually in September - first staged in 1997.
You'll find us at the Kennedy Road end of Nelson Park (down Jull Street)   Click on pictures above to see map of location.
We have been at our present site since 1996 when the now defunct Napier Bowling Club invited us to take over one of their bowling greens.  When the bowling club eventually closed we took over the premises and gradually upgraded to what we are today.
We have twenty two piste, eleven on either side of a walkway covered by shade cloth, which is very welcome in the hot summers.
