Whitnash Windmill Pétanque Club (WWPC) is based at the Whitnash Sports and Social Club, which is a multisports club with bowls, football, table tennis and tennis sections, amongst others, already established. The purpose built terrain provides us with space for up to 12 games with flood lighting. the temporary terrain will remain providing us with additional space for larger events.
We have enhanced the facilities with a Pavilion, courtesy of funding from the Heart of England Community Foundation, and benches alongside two sides of the terrain. In addition, with assistance from Warwick District Council, we have purchased permanant scoreboards and signage to make the facility safe and easy to use for all members. The hard-working committee work continuously to improve the facilities at Whitnash, and over recent times has installed seating inside the pavilion, an admin area which is used for organising competitions, and has purchased its own coaching equipment and barbecue in order that they can provide refreshments for their competitions.
There is a licenced bar available and drinks may be taken outside, provided that they are not taken onto the playing area. Parking is available adjacent to the terrain, except for big competitions when a car park is utilised in the playing fields adjacent to the Club.
We have put together some details of Local Accommodation for anyone who might wish to make a weekend of it and see some of the local attractions. These include the regency town of Leamington Spa, Shakespeare’s Stratford and Warwick with the magnificent Warwick Castle. Rates quoted may not be current, so enquiries should be made before booking.
