How did DC Petanque Start?
DC Petanque was formed in August 2013 by the late Daniel Chalmers.It has always been a family run business and is now run by Daniel's wife Kirsty Chalmers. We would like to let you know that it will carry on being called DC Petanque in honour of Daniel's memory and legacy.
So how did the business start? We started as an ebay shop (which is still open today) as we found that no proper Petanque equipment was sold through the site in the UK. After we started we quickly began selling equipment to all four corners of the United Kingdom and regularly getting business from mainland Europe.
Many players in this country buy their equipment from France, which can prove expensive. With the increasing number of players taking up the game and high demand for all types of equipment we decided that there was a need for more suppliers in England.
We wanted to offer players equipment that wasn't already available for sale in this country and deliver a simple, quick and efficient shopping experience.
As a family we have played the game for many years, and our love for the game grew as we played during many wonderful summer holidays in France. As an English/French family the sport is very much in our blood.
We have been players at Bourne Abbots Petanque club for nearly a decade. Daniel Chalmers was chairman of the club for 5 years from 2012 to 2017.
We frequently play in competitions during the summer months. We don't pretend to be the best players, but we hope we can supply you the equipment you need so that you can be!
