National Capital Club de Pétanque

About Us

Thank you for visiting the offical site for the National Capital Club de Pétanque. The club consists of members from across the 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 and Wednesday 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 1:30 PM until the last players leave around 4:00 PM except in extreme weather. See the Schedule page for information on tournaments and other events.

We also gather on Wednesday afternoons starting at 1:30 pm for several hours of play.

Please feel free to come and join in the fun. As always non-members are welcome!  We have loaner boules for beginners.
