Founded in 1997, Worthing Petanque Club has been based at the West Worthing Club (WWC) since 2013. We have a variety of playing surfaces, of varying degrees of difficulty, with floodlights for evening play. We are affiliated to the Southern Counties Petanque Association (SCPA), one of sixteen geographic divisions of the sport's governing body Petanque England (PE). Because of the facilities available at WWC we regularly host large events, including the International Weekend of Petanque, in May, and the PE Ranking Doubles and Triples later in the summer.
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.
This is a sociable sport, for all ages and walks of life. Whether you are an experienced player or you just fancy having a go, 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 £90 pa.
We do not levy a charge for attendance - come as often as you like.
