Pétanque in New York City.

leave a comment »

I love Pétanque, I even built a court at our house in the countryside. The game is amazing and is best played with a glass of Rose in hand and some sun in the sky and a long and lazy Sunday. If you are in New York be sure to check out – LA BOULE NEW YORKAISE.

They play in Bryant Park and in Washington Square Park, though the latter is under reconstruction right now. Some of their members also play in various parts of Queens, Brooklyn, and Westchester. Their club is dedicated to promoting pétanque as a fun and recreational activity, as well as a competitive sport.

Over in Brooklyn – Check out Brooklyn Boule – Petanque in Brooklyn, New York. Playing in McCarren Park Williamsburg / Greenpoint, or other areas in Brooklyn. All players welcome.  – Wednesday Nights @ 8.00 and Sunday Afternoons @ 3.00 –
