Inter-Company Pétanque Tournament 2023

In summer 2022, LQ BID installed a Pétanque Piste at Blackstaff Square in the Linen Quarter of Belfast.

Since then, we have been supporting local organisations and members of the public to take up the game, which was first started in France over 100 years ago but is making a resurgence across Europe.

LQ BID’s Inter-Company Pétanque Tournament Gets Underway

Beginning on Tuesday August 15th, our first ever Inter-Company Tournament will see local organisations face off against each other during lunchtimes throughout August & September. As well as bragging rights, organisations will be competing for a number of prizes including Belfast City Centre Giftcards, and a grand prize of £200 in vouchers to be spent at the Grand Central Hotel Observatory.

Check back below to see how each organisation is progressing, or swing by the Piste at Blackstaff Square some lunch time to spectate!

And if you fancy having a go yourself, you can rent a boules set from the nearby Acton & Sons restaurant, and there’s a handy explainer video on how to play here. 

Congratulations to 2023 Winners: Navigator Blue
