Origins of the game
Pétanque (French pronunciation: [petɑ̃k]; Occitan: petanca [peˈtaŋkɔ]) is a form of Boules where the goal is to toss or roll hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally “piglet”) or jack, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.The invention of pétanque according to a document in the Musée Ciotaden in La Ciotat signed by Ernest Pitiot, pétanque in its present form was first played in 1910 in what is now called the Jules Lenoir Boulodrome in the town of La Ciotat near Marseilles.
Huntingfield Pétanque Club was formed in 2011 with a core of members some of whom are still involved. Like any organisation, there is always a turnover of members for many different reasons. Today we actively seek new members with or without experience for this most sociable of games. When we start playing usually in March each year and continue though to late autumn, we are happy to give our time to any prospective players if they want to “have a taster” for the game. All ages can play, but those under 16 years will need to be accompanied by a family member or nominated carer.
Huntingfield Pétanque Club currently play in the Solestar division of the Adnams Pétanque League. Anyone can play on the Pétanque piste or terrain (except when matches are scheduled) which is situated on the Millennium Green above and behind The Hub ( 3 villages hall) and is opposite the Huntingfield Arms public house.
