National Capital Club de Petanque

About Us

Thank you for visiting the offical site for the National Capital Club de Petanque. The club consists of members from across the entire Washington DC metro area including Maryland, Northern Virginia and the city of Washington DC. Please accept our warmest invitation to come join us to play a game we love very much. Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome to join us every Saturday at Virginia Highlands Park in Arlington, VA. We are always looking for new folks to come experience the joy of petanque. Come join us, won't you?

We play every Saturday from the early afternoon to dusk except in extreme weather. See the Schedule page for information on tournaments and other events.

We also gather on Wednesday afternoons, starting around 3:30 pm, for several hours of play.

Please feel free to come and join in the fun. As always non-members are welcome!
