Marches Pétanque League was founded in 1992. It has thrived and expanded and now has over twenty teams playing from fourteen venues across the Marches.
Matches are played, in the summer, on Wednesday evenings and through the winter on Sundays. Club competitions are held through the summer too.
Hereford Pétanque Club is a more recent creation, allowing members to play more widely both regionally and nationally through affiliation to Pétanque England.
