We play socially on Saturdays at 10.00am and Wednesdays at 1.00pm. Play will last until either the weather or fatigue says its time to stop.
The last Saturday of each month is devoted to the monthly melee which as well as a stand alone competition is also a cumulative scoring event to find the year’s individual champion.
On other Saturdays we may hold members competitions such as Pairs, Triples or even Gents versus Ladies. We also have themed events planned for members such as Bastille Day celebrations.
Occasionally we host Northern Petanque League competitions but these will generally be on a Sunday.
We intend to arrange friendly matches with other local clubs which may be home or away. Also 2015 saw the formation of a West Yorkshire Petanque League which included teams from Leeds, Mirfield, Huddersfield and Heckmondwike.. Heckmondwike emerged as Champions. To finish the year a Kirklees Autumn League was run with teams from Hudderfield, Mirfield and Heckmondwike taking part. Heckmondwike teams finished Champions and Runners-up. Both of these leagues ran in 2016 and Heckmondwike were very pleased to retain the Champion’s title in both of them. Competition in 2016 was very, very close as clubs improve and both leagues were only decided on the final matches of each. 2017 promises to be very exciting.
Our calendar for 2018, as planned so far, can be viewed in the Paperwork section of this site.
