Les Boulefrogs of Church Hill Petanque Club was formed in the spring of 2005 with an initial membership of twelve enthusiastic members. Our membership now numbers thirty-five and we are growing. At first we played on local gravel-covered alleys until Richmond Parks and Recreation supported us in building two temporary courts in Chimborazo Playground in the fall of 2006. The Playground is scheduled for a complete renovation in the near future and we plan to have at least four new courts as the centerpiece of the playground.
