The Club
Saxons Pétanque Club InformationCricklade Leisure Centre, Stones Lane, Cricklade, Wiltshire SN6 6JW Saxons Pétanque Club
About the Club The Saxons Petanque Club was formed at the Cricklade Bowls Club in September 2008 with 6 members
Due to lack of space we moved to the Cricklade Leisure Centre in March 2012 with 30 members. We built up to have approx. 65 members. In 2021 several members split off to form Cricklade Petanque Club at Cricklade Spa Hotel. This left us with just over 40 members.
Joining the Club
We would love for you to just turn up at the club and give it a go! We can provide you with spare boules and anything else you require in order to work out if this is the sport for you. Most new members get hooked right from the start!

Training, Instruction and Practice sessions are available on some Wednesday mornings.The Leisure Centre provides other facilities including a café and toilets.
Members take part in club events throughout the year including:- Winter and Summer Scores competitions. Also Singles/Doubles competitions (Summer) and the Eileen Mitchell competition.
The club is a member of Petanque England which holds regional events, allowing members to join and take part as individuals or teams. Currently we have about 8 members who hold PE membership taking part in a wider range of competitions on a regular basis.
The club also has a team that plays in the local Cotswold Petanque League, which is still competitive but less intense.
The club occasionally organises a 1 or 2 week petanque holiday to Spain usually in October. In the past we have stayed in Almunecar in Southern Spain. This includes players from Cricklade, Bath, Marlow, Malmesbury and Cirencester making it a very friendly and enjoyable way of playing the game in a beautiful setting.
The club also has a clothing range of polo-shirts, sweat-shirts, fleeces and baseball caps with the club logo on.
