Pétanque lessons in Bryant Park



As the Pétanque season warms up in New York City, Bryant Park is alive once again to the sounds of clacking boule and cheers of triumph. The newly laid lawn is now finished and almost ready to sit upon and most of the laying of new pipes under the paving stones etc is complete. The park is reborn. For those that don't know, pétanque lesson are given throughout the week from 11:00 - 6:00. There is, at nearly any given time, people playing pétanque in the park. A constant flow at all times, games played, people coming and going, smiles and handshakes. All are welcome and all feel welcomed. A serene haven in the hustle a bustle of Manhattan. So if you have some time to spare, stop by and throw some boules around. Get to know how this little corner of a park can be a home away from home or an arena of gladiators.....

Brooklyn Boule goes official ........

Brooklyn Boule is now an official FPUSA Pétanque club.

It has been a long time in the making but now with the support of the Federation of Petanque USA and the other New York clubs, we have come together to to give rise to a new pétanque club in North Brooklyn. In doing so we hope to broaden the wealth of players and the love for the game.....
 The club, as of this posting, is still young, with a modest group of dedicated players, with varied skills and playing abilities. We are encouraging players to come and join from all boroughs, no matter what your Pétanque experience is, from novice to pro, there is always room for more.
 Strength in numbers is our goal at the moment. As the sun has started to finally show it's winter-worn face, we will be starting our scheduled meeting times and organizing games. For anyone wanting to become a new member and support the rebirth of Brooklyn Boule please email us at Brooklyn Boule.
