Convert a tennis court into a high quality, pétanque terrain able to host competitions & sustain a growing interest in pétanque locally.

by ian mcnicholas in Milnrow, England, United Kingdom

Pétanque, a true sport for all, has been played within Rochdale for many years now. With a successful grass roots league structure, it is now time for this sport to take its next steps in growth within the area.

Rochdale Pétanque will create a facility capable of not only helping existing players grow and develop,  but encouraging new players and increasing overall uptake of this accessible sport.

Situated at Milnrow Cricket Club, the new facility will convert an old and now unused tennis court into a multi-piste terrain capable of hosting high quality competitions, attracting teams and players from across the North-West and beyond.

Pétanque as a sport has numerous benefits, a low cost entry point for new players wishing to start playing, as well as opportunities to travel, play across the country and abroad for those that play often and train hard. In addition, as an inclusive sport, it brings together people from a broad demographic and increases mental & physical wellbeing.
