We have a comprehensive list of events happening in August in the UK. The petanque competitions are a mixed bag of opens, regional and fun events. If you want to try to compete you may want to have a look first and this list is a great guide to let you know what is happening near you so you could pop along and watch. Petanque players are a great bunch of people and many are happy to talk about the game and help newcomers. So wander along and have a chat, you may be surprised at the welcome.
