Pétanque in Nova Scotia!

New Pétanque Club in Nova Scotia!


The Boule acadienne now has a five-member committee formed during its first meeting on October 20, 2020: One president, one vice-president, one treasurer, and two directors. While waiting for a first General Assembly, which should be take place before the end of this year, the new office ratified the official and legal declaration of the "Boule acadienne Association" to the Provincial.

The official club logo has been unanimously approved  by the five members present. It will be included in all of our publications as soon as technically possible.

THE 2021 MEMBER REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN to anyone from our community of CLARE and surrounding locations. Francophones or anglophones from adolescence to "silver-hair" age can join.

Pétanque (cousin of Bocce) is a festive and friendly boule sport suitable for everyone.
