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.

LPM Cleanup Day

Hi All,
As anyone who has been to the LPM Courts lately knows, our grass is growing heartily!  And, since lawn is the one surface on which we do not play petanque, then as you will surmise, it must be removed.
Claudie and I will be at the courts this coming Wednesday, February 13, with a couple of hired workers who will be doing much of the heavier work. 
But many hands make for light work and it would be great if some of you could give even a little time to the project. 
Any time between 10:00 - Noon - we will likely go later, but for sure, we will be there until 1PM. 
If you have a rake, please bring it.  If you do not, bring your gloves and we will provide a rake.
Thanks in advance, for any help you might be able to contribute.
And thanks to those who came to play in our first tournament of the season.  It was a beautiful day and lots of fun!
