AIKB Members are invited to sample the game of petanque at the "Club Petanque Rostrenoise”.

The club plays at Ancienne Gare Rostrenen, Rte Kergrist , 22110 Rostrenen. The club is affiliated to the Federation Francaise de Petanque et Jeu Provencal and has just under fifty members of both sexes. The club internal competition is organized on a Wednesday and Saturday afternoon but also, we have two senior and two veteran teams who compete in the departmental championships. We currently have three English speaking members, by coincidence all named Peter, one British and two Dutch!! We have all been made very welcome to the club and enjoy our twice weekly free French lesson. The AIKB afternoon will be organised in the same way as our internal club competition.

Please arrive between 13.30 and 13.45 hours for inscription and an introduction to the rules of the game. The games last approximately fifty minutes. Three or four games will be played during the afternoon. The computer will select the teams, two AIKB players will be accompanied by one club member who will give our visitors a little guidance. An entry fee of two Euro will be charged which is placed in a kitty. At the end of the afternoon the kitty will be awarded to the winners, guests only. Usually about half of the players qualify for a share of the kitty but it is not a way to get rich!!! The tradition is that after each game the winning team buys a drink for the losers, a chance to chat and make new friends. You will spend about five Euro during a typical afternoon. No special equipment or clothing is required for the afternoon, I would suggest comfortable shoes and trousers/slacks. Boules will be provided but if you have your own please bring them. Should the weather be wet we have an indoor facility but the meeting point will be at the clubhouse.

Please reserve and pay 3€ per person in advance to AIKB, then pay 2€ to the club on the day. Rdv 13h30 Club Pétanque Rostrenoise, l’Ancienne Gare Rostrenen, Route Kergrist, 22110 Rostrenen.
