The women’s club, BCNN (the Beachcities Neighbors & Newcomer’s Club for Women in Ventura, Oxnard and Pt. Hueneme- they also have activities with men) play Petanque. It  is one of our many activities (we have over 30 different types of activities in the Club).

We are Pétanque enthusiasts who play at two different times. For the general public – 2nd & 4th Wednesdays at Portside Park at Portside Ventura Harbor at 2:30 p.m. (located off Harbor, Spinnaker to Navigator.) We play on the side walkways of the Volleyball court area.

Also, a BCNN ladies group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. at Portside Park.

Ventura Petanque was started in September, 2018. We give free lessons (you can borrow our “boules”) and then you can obtain your own “boules” online at very reasonable prices.

Petanque is a French equivalent to the Italian Bocce Ball game (it uses small metal


This game is suitable to any age because of the small sized metal balls which are played on dirt surfaces between 20 feet and 30 feet distance.  The object is for a team to get the closest to the target ball “cochenet” (little pig).
