The club

Odense Pétanque Klub ´87 – Den lille Gris (’the tiny jack’) is one of Denmarks oldest and biggest pétanque clubs. In 2012 we celebrate our 25. anniversary and the number  of members amounts to approx. 100 (2012).

In the club we seek to accommodate both inexperienced as well as highly professional players. Often we play according to level of experience, but during the summer and winter season small tournaments are arranged in which doublettes are formed regardless of present skills.

All year round a great number of club members participate in regional and national tournaments. Presently Odense Pétanque Klub is represented in the national league with one team in 1. division and one team in 3. division (teams of 9 persons). Until recently our best team ranked as one of the top 5 teams inDenmarkand a lot of present and former national champions of single, doublette and triplette can be found among the members.

In May – following a 25 year old tradition – Odense Pétanque Klub arranges a big national tournament at our training facilities in a park close to the city center. Here players from all overDenmark(and sometimes also foreigners) gather to play, to have a good time and to win honour and generous prizes. Usually this tournament takes place in the third or fourth weekend of May.

During the winter season – due to our fantastic indoor facilities – we arrange a number of tournaments with participants from clubs all overDenmark.

In the club we welcome potential new members. No matter if you are already living in the area or you are a pétanque player just passing through on a short visit: come by and try it out and meet the locals!
