Petanque court

If we are walking on the Main Streat in Keszthely, it is worth taking a detour of 15-30 minutes to try the Petanque court, which is open all year round. The rules can be learned in a few minutes and all family members can easily join the game. We can spend a little time in one of the most beautiful enclosed courtyards in the city, which is already worth it.


Game for the Whole Family

What is Petanque?

Petanque is a French-origin ball game, similar to the one seen in the hungarian film Pál Street Boys. It is basically a light sport, great for entertainment even in hot summer days. The manager of Pampetrics wine shop, Milán, is happy to help us with learning the rules and getting the right equipment. The use of the game is free, but we should thank him by having a drink, wine or beer while playing.

Where is the court located?

The Petanque court is located in one of the most atmospheric enclosed courtyards in Keszthely. It is the perfect setting for such a game, as it is close to Keszthely’s bustling main street, yet still provides a peaceful and undisturbed environment for playing. The entrance to the courtyard is from the Promenade Street, and the pitch is surrounded by buildings of historical and art-historical significance: Keszthely’s oldest civilian building, the Pethő-house, and the old-fashioned synagogue located at the back of the courtyard.

The design of the court is attributed to Milán Pampetrics, a wine merchant. His aim was to create a new communal space in the heart of Keszthely, as well as to promote the sport of Petanque.
