Thursday Petanque


Welcome to the home of Thursday Petanque.

What is Thursday Petanque?

Back in the early 1990's Mike Webb decided to help promote the then dwindling Bass 1990's league, eventually taking over the organisation completely. This was then renamed the East Midlands Thursday Pairs and ran through the summer, usually starting early in May. If you hadn't already guessed then yes, it was played on a Thursday evening.

Up until recently, all the clubs were based in the East Midlands area, around the Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire divide but it has expanded slightly by now including Mansfield.
