  • (Almost Spring) News From the Petanque Court
    March 2, 2020

    A mild winter has allowed players to enjoy games every week. We want to give special thanks to the late Marge Brockner, mother of our friend Joanne Yacko, for her generous gift. With this fund and the contributions of our players, we restored the playing surface of our court. I also want to thank our club members for responding so generously to our December fundraising drive for the maintenance of our ball field. It is wonderful to see young and old community members playing and enjoying our beautiful green space. The NSCA and the New Suffolk Pétanque Club are committed to help the school with the maintenance of our ball field. Every one can play petanque, it will take 5 minutes for you to learn, so do not hesitate and join the fun. We have excellent players who will be more than happy to coach you. Interested? Stop by when we play (every Wednesday and Sunday at 1pm or contact Michelle Roussan at mroussan@optimum.net.

    Stay tuned for a Spring update in April!

  • A League of Their Own: New Suffolk Falls for Pétanque
    November 21, 2017 | East End Beacon

    You’ll be forgiven, for now, if you’ve never heard of a sport called Pétanque. A cousin of bocce ball, the French sport of Pétanque is played all over the world but it hasn’t really had a breakthrough in the continental U.S. New Suffolk resident Michelle Roussan is on a mission to change all that, and she’s inducted a tribe of devotees who make their way to the New Suffolk ball field, every day that weather permits, to spend an afternoon attempting to best their neighbors in a sport that’s every bit about technique and concentration.
