Any number between two or six. The maximum number of balls used in a game is 12.

Anytime. Holidays, lunch breaks, picnics, barbeques. Petanque is a year round sport.

Who can come and play at Vauxhall Gardens?  

Anybody of any age or skill can come and play. Regular players will be happy to teach you some techniques.

Do I need to be a Club member?  
No, no membership is required to play although if you are looking to play regularly, being a member of LPC means you are covered by our insurance.

Our Character
What’s our Club like? Welcoming and friendly is a reputation that we cherish. Newcomers often comment on this. We hope we are non-judgemental and we’d like everyone to feel part of the same Club. Playing games at the Club every week with teams randomly drawn mixes everyone up. We want to avoid smaller cliques only playing within one another. If you like playing as part of a regular team there are plenty of opportunities to do this playing at competitions. In the end most members are just out for a good time!
