NEW! Gather your teams and supporters and join our Inaugural Pétanque Tournament.


Pétanque is to France, what Cricket is to England, an iconic game which attracts a diverse crowd, often staged at the centre of a community. Apart from balls being thrown, the similarities end there, as each game of pétanque takes minutes, rather than days and the rules are far simpler!

All members of the Chamber are welcome to enjoy this fun event and for those who do not wish to play, social tickets are also available.

Each team, called a triplette, consists of 3 players. Member companies are encouraged to book as a team but we will consider grouping individual players, subject to demand. A maximum of 32 teams will compete. Please note that registration is limited to a maximum of 2 teams per member company.

Tickets include all games (the more your team wins, the more you play!), which will be facilitated, welcome drinks and a selection of street food.

The rules:
🟢 To start the game, team 1 throws the jack (le cochonnet) and then each team throws their starting boule. The team that is furthest away from the jack continues to throw until they are the closest. Then it's the other team's turn.
🟢 After all boules have been thrown (6 per team), the team closest to the jack gets 1 point for each boule that is closer than the opposing team's best boule. First to 13 points wins.

So gather your teams and supporters. It won't quite be the Paris Olympics but medals will be just as desirable. And who wouldn't want to display the dazzling victors' trophy in their reception!?

As we approach the Paris Olympics, why not associate your brand with sporting excellence and the dynamic French business community?To find out more about a sponsorship package to suit your budget and objectives, email:
