A brief history of the Club.
Worthing Petanque Club was founded in 1997. We now have around 60 adult members and two Juniors.
In 2013 the Club became a section of the West Worthing Club CIC (WWC), and now play on a flood-lt purpose-built terrain
at the WWC grounds in Titnore Way, Worthing.
We are affiliated to the Southern Counties Petanque Association (SCPA), one of sixteen geographic divisions
of the sport's governing body Petanque England (PE)
We compete, as Worthing Peacocks (sponsored by Bay Studio), and Worthing Simpsons (sponsored by Simpson Electrical Solutions) in the SCPA 6-a-side League.
Individual membership of PE is not mandatory except for Committee members and for people wishing to compete in Regional or National competitions However it is strongly encouraged beacause of the the measure of third pary liability cover that it provides. You can see PE's guidance on this subject by clicking here.
Our members are required to adhere to the PE Member's Code of Conduct
This is a sociable sport, for all ages and walks of life. If you fancy having a go, or if you are a more experienced
player, we would love to see you. Just come to one of our sessions on Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays from
10am, and Fridays from 7pm. Our two qualified coaches will be happy to show you the basics, and you can have three free sessions before deciding whether to join. If you have your own boules bring them along, if not we'll supply them. There is no dress code - just dress for the weather - but flat sensible shoes are a must. Wheelchair access to the terrain is provided.
If you decide to join us you need to become a petanque member of WWC, currently £88 pa..
We do not levy a charge for attendance - come as often as you like.
