DRAFT TO BE INCLUDED UNDER OUR CLUB WHEN FINALISED (01/10/2019)
On 10th September 2017 Mornington Peninsula Petanque Club held a much awaited opening ceremony of its home ground at Moorooduc Recreation Centre in Derril Road Moorooduc. It took months of working bees where our enthusiastic, hard working members got together and added finishing touches to the surfaces of the pistes, painted outdoor tables and chairs, mowed and weeded and generally completed all things necessary to make our home ground at Moorooduc as appealing as possible.
Many club discussions have been held over the past seasons in relation to petanque associated clubs on the Peninsula and the PFA/VPCI competitions. MPPC is a social club with occasional games at other peninsula clubs when invited. This has led to the introduction of a specific annual game with the Somers Club and consideration of other club competitions as they arise. Members can always choose to play in other competitions across the state as they wish.
MPPC has a monthly intra-club competition day on the first Sunday of each month. All newcomers are encouraged to visit on these days to participate and enjoy the camaradarie of this club competition day.
As at July 2019, MPPC has ..... members. We play at our home ground on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons from August to June with a winter break for the month of July. We welcome players of all standards together with those who wish to learn, to join us and experience the fun of our club, social interaction with members and learn about the great game of French Boules. We ask you to simply visit on the above days or contact our President or Secretary to discuss a potential visit. Contact details are on the "Contact Us" page of our website .
MPPC is developing a Sponsorship Program and a Community Support Program to assist the growth of the club and development of our playing area as well as our membership and operational programs within the community, providing focus on the increased knowledge of the game of Petanque. We have an active Social Committee working together with a proactive Management Committee, assuring continued growth and activity within the club's operation.
