Some BHPC Members

Welcome to Brighton and Hove Pétanque Club (BHPC)

We are a very friendly and active club dedicated to promoting and developing the wonderful game of pétanque.

We’re based at the Peace Statue terrain, on Brighton seafront (opposite Embassy Court) by Meeting Place café. Generously provided by Brighton and Hove Council, the terrain is one of the best and largest in the country and is set in an unrivalled location.

We meet on Saturday and Sunday afternoons all year round (from 2pm, April to October; from 1pm, November to March) and on Wednesday evenings (from 6pm) during the summer.

We have on-site a fully-equipped clubhouse, with toilet facilities.

There’s a wealth of  information – including a comprehensive photo gallery – about our club and pétanque on this website. Take a stroll.

We welcome new members of all ages and all levels of experience to enjoy this wonderful sport or to develop their talents to compete at all levels from local to international.

Join us!

    Hi all.

    Does anybody ever meet on Wednesday evenings for play? Is there anyway of knowing when individuals are intending to turn up?

    • Hi Phil,

      I presume it was you this evening? We do have a regular Wed eve session during the Summer months.

      All club members are very welcome to attend but the emphasis is (supposed!) to be on League matches and coaching and practise for the more established teams.

      When the weather’s good, we usually get some excellent games and it’s a really enjoyable and worthwhile evening.

      The club does have a Twitter feed which is a good way of letting everybody know – however, it does seem to have fallen into disuse, which seems a shame. Club members do receive an email and phone list, so members can contact each other.

      Word of mouth is usually the best way 🙂

      Hope to see you again soon.

      Regards,

      Ray
