The Capital Petanque Club was formed on the 20th May 2009 and soon after became affiliated with the Petanque Federation of Australia (PFA), the governing body of the sport.
Membership was about 10 or so people at that time, and our first President was Tony Wynd.
The new group started playing on a gravel basketball court at the Primary School in Yarralumla.
Prior to this people were playing Petanque locally with the 'Bouledogs' which was the first club in the ACT.
