The Los Angeles Pétanque Club was founded in 1983 by a small group of people who for the sheer love of the game strove to create our courts here at Rancho Park, to better share the sport and to expose others to a popular French tradition. Their enthusiasm for a good time promoted what we have today.
As a member club of the Federation of Pétanque USA, the LAPC has a commitment to helping new players learn the proper skills and develop their playing skill to the highest degree possible. Several club members volunteer their time to assist in the training of players on an informal basis.
Pétanque is both a leisure activity and a competitive professional sport, and has been adopted as an Olympic event. Whatever level you choose to play on, the game will bring you many rewards that last a lifetime.
The Club is open everyday but most players are present on Monday & Thursday 3:00pm to 8:00pm and Saturday 9:30am to 5:00pm.The lighted Pétanque Courts are adjacent to the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center and the Rancho Park Golf Course.
