WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL BLOG for La Pétanque Marinière in San Rafael, California. LPM has been an active Marin pétanque club since 1972 and affiliated with the Fédération of Pétanque USA, since 1975. We welcome people of all abilities, ages and nationalities to come and enjoy pétanque with us.

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.

La Pétanque Marinière would like to hear from those of you who participated in last Saturday's Open Tournament at the Steak Picnic. If you have ever participated in a tournament where you wished things might have been a bit better had they been organised differently, now is your time to let us know.

You can simply go to the sidebar on the right side and vote anonymously,
or click on post your comments to leave us your more detailed praise and/or criticism.

We would love to hear from you so that we can do our best to make our future events more pleasurable for everyone.
