Solihull Pétanque Club is based at the Blossomfield Club and is the home of French Boules in the South Birmingham area.

We are affiliated to the EPA (English Pétanque Association) playing boules socially and competitively throughout the year, and are active participants in the Heart of England summer league.

Come along, whatever your experience. Perhaps you’re a competitive player or maybe you’ve just played on holiday – all are welcome and loan boules are freely available.

Blossomfield Petanque

Solihull Club de Pétanque was founded in September 1982 and achieved affiliation to the National body the following year. It became a fully integrated section of the Blossomfield Club when it moved to the Widney Lane site in 1996.

We play boules on two purpose built terrains. The primary terrain is floodlit and can accommodate 12 teams (six lanes) in comfort. It also provides full wheelchair access. When hosting larger events the second terrain extends our capacity to 24 teams. Our aim is to provide facilities that are amongst the finest in the West Midlands Pétanque region.

Fun Boules

Pétanque is an easy sport to get started in. It’s enjoyed by young and old alike, gets you outside and can be played by people of all fitness levels. Because we wish to encourage more participants into the sport, Solihull Pétanque offers a warm welcome to any new players. So come along to a “Club Day” and try it for yourself or better still, bring a friend. We can introduce you to the game and loan boules are freely available.

Competitive Boules

If you’re a more experienced player wishing to join an EPA (English Pétanque Association) affiliated club in the West Midlands, you would enjoy playing at Solihull. We currently field one team in the first division and three in the second of the HoEPA (Heart of England Pétanque Association) Summer League and are considering a feeder team to give more of our players the opportunity to experience competitive boules. Our members also participate in many other tournaments throughout the year and we run internal summer and autumn events.

Social Activities

As part of the Blossomfield Club, there’s an extensive social calendar, offering a wide range of activities to Solihull Pétanque members.
