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. 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.

Singles Tournament Rescheduled

The Singles Tournament has been rescheduled:  It will now be held on 

Saturday, October 29th.

If you are able to make the new date, I will mark you as registered.  

If you can not, let me know and I will shred your check (or return it voided if you wish).

Note:  I know this falls on the rain date for Sacramento's rescheduled 6Ball Challenge - but it is the only weekend we can pull it off.  All we can do is hope for a beautiful, sunny weekend.
