The Legation Boules Club is now meeting for regular play at the French Legation on Wednesdays at 1pm.

At a future date, when the Legation is open on weekends, the LBC will start meeting there on Sunday afternoons.   

The LBC encourages everyone to follow the current best practices as set out by the CDC to limit disease transmission.  


The Legation Boules Club celebrates the game of pétanque through friendship, community and sharing of knowledge.
