The Pierre Joske Courts are located on Civic Center drive in San Rafael. (click for directions). Casual games are played every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from about 1 pm. Tournament play is usually held on the second Sunday of every month.

Please consult the links on the sidebar to the right for more information on clubs in the bay area, nationally and world wide.

If you would like to play but haven't any boules, please contact our President, Christine Cragg, or Ken Lee. They can bring some for you to use, as well as introduce you to the basic skills and techniques of pétanque. In addition, if you are looking to purchase boules but are unsure as to which size and weight are right for you, we have a range of different examples from which to choose.

more kiwi fotos

Here are more fotos from the "over 60" tournament held in Sonoma earlier this month. They were taken by Peggy Matsuda of Big Boules in Healdsburgs' Dry Creek Valley. As you will see, Peggy is a fine photograher, and speaking from experience, a wonderful person with whom to play pétanque...even though she did beat us.
