  Petanque Play Under Covid-19 Restrictions

At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Marin County closed the Pierre Joske Petanque Courts to play to limit the spread of the virus, but now with the re-opening of businesses, etc., we are now being allowed to re-open for Petanque. However there are some rules that must be followed in order to keep safe on the courts as it relates to Covid-19. Here is a link to the Marin County Site Specific Plan* and the Conditions of Play
