Welcome to the Wheatsheafpc Website
Our first melee is on Wednesday 15th of April 2020 at 18.45.
Come and join us and have some fun!
The Wheatsheaf Pétanque Club is a well established club consisting of over 20 members. The Club was established by the late landlord of the Wheatsheaf Inn, Henry Powell, over 20 years ago. It was one of the founder clubs of the Boules In Gwent (BIG) League and currently has 3 teams in the league, as well as 1 team in the Welsh Pétanque Association (WPA) League.
During the summer months we hold a weekly mêlée on Wednesday evenings from 6:45pm. Everyone is welcome - whether experienced or total beginners!! The idea of a mêlée is for the teams to be a random mix so everyone gets a fair chance. We play 3 games and you should end up playing with different people for each game. Pétanque is a 'warmer weather' sport so our first Wednesday night mêlée usually starts mid-April.
For those of us who are mad enough to play throughout the winter, we hold a weekly mêlée on a Sunday afternoon starting at 12pm. On a Sunday we only play 2 games as it is usually too wet or too cold!! During the winter, we play from November until the end of March.
