Similar to Boules, Pétanque is a classically simple game of strategy and chance, that is thought to have originated in 1907. Originally created in the South of France in the city of La Ciotat, its shorter pitch and stationary delivery quickly made it the most popular version of the game.
Located in Hay’s Galleria, perfectly situated on the Thames River, it's the proud owner of London’s only outdoor covered Pétanque Pitch, exclusive to The Alexander Hay. It is a perfect team activity for a bit of friendly competition!
