Club Information

Troon Petanque Club was formed in 1989 with the first game of ‘boules’ played in Troon on the second of January that year. 

The club now has its home at Fullarton Woods and is an affiliated member of the Scottish Petanque Association. 

We also have strong links with Troon Town Twinning Association and Marr Rugby.  Competitions are held throughout the year with league matches being held each Wednesday evening during the summer. 

Some club members meet each Friday and Sunday morning for informal play (weather permitting) and new members are always encouraged to join in the fun. Petanque is an ideal sport for all the family – it is great fun and not too strenuous.  Our playing area is next to Marr Rugby Clubhouse and club leisure boules are available to anyone willing to try the game.  Family fun days are always included in the fixture list with the express purpose of encouraging new players.  Come and join us!

At Troon we play petanque with metal boules and a wooden jack on a gravel surface at Fullarton but all sorts of variants exist including water-filled plastic boules for beach holidays and soft plastic and leather boules for indoor play.
