RendezVous Pétanque Clinic - April 1-2*

* weather permitting with 24 hours notice

The Clinic is $85/person including lunch and all other weekend games.

Saturday - Clinic

  • 9:30AM coffee & croissants
  • 10:00AM clinic kick-off

Folks will be split up into two groups; first-time players, and experienced players.

  • First-time players will learn the basic of the game, how to hold boules, etc.
  • Existing players will work on their skills with pointing and shooting, and more advanced techniques.

The clinic will be split by a 1-hour lunch break catered by the restaurant, and at 5:00PM we'll have complimentary hors d'oeuvres with a cash bar.

If you'd like to stay for dinner, please make reservations for the restaurant through Resy or by calling the restaurant at 828-348-0909.

Sunday - Panache Games

Open to coaches and folks interested in seeing the game played! We will have a day of panache games, meaning players change teams every hour—the principle is to observe and learn the strategy of the game.

The day will end with a one-game competition.

Who is Coaching?

Bo Edwards, Mike House, Marc Quilici, Kathy Cline, Tracie Jeffries, Juan Hernandez, and Bill Cooke.

When you meet, learn, and play with them during the clinic, you will have fun getting to know the coaches while becoming better players.
