Subiaco Pétanque Club

 

Subiaco Petanque Club is one of six Pétanque Clubs within the metropolitan area of Perth.

New members/visitors are always welcome. 

Pétanque is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet. The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel, but can also be played on grass or other surfaces. Similar games are bocce and bowls.

The term pétanque  means “Feet Tied Together".

Bowl games really became organised at the end of the 18th century. The Fédération Lyonnaise et Régionale  was founded in 1906 followed in 1933 by the Fedération Nationale des Boules which became the Fédération Française in 1942. In conjunction with this development Mediterraneans were practicing the Jeu provençal which was similar.

It is this Provençal game that later gave birth to the game of  pétanque which was codified in 1927 and led to the foundation of the Fédération Française de Pétanque et de Jeu Provençal (FFPJP).
