Boston - Boston Pétanque[]

Boston - Charlesgate Pétanque[]

About the time of World War I, almost half-a-million Armenian refugees fled the Armenian genocide and settled in the Marseille area, where they learned both French and petanque. Later, many of those French-speaking, petanque-playing French-Armenians emigrated to Worcester, MA, and formed one of the first petanque clubs in the USA— the Le Mistral club. In 2009, Le Mistral evolved into the Boston Petanque Club. Later (around 2023?) Boston Pétanque developed a very nice web page and evolved into Charlesgate Pétanque.

The old Boston Pétanque web pages still exist, but aren't useful.

There are other locations to play in and around Boston.
