A very interesting read is the Wikipedia on Petanque atétanque

Just imagine the main individual pétanque tournament that takes place every year in Marseille, with more than 10,000 participants and more than 150,000 spectator.....


Also see....

UK Petanque Portal For the sport of petanque within the uk. "The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users."



We play in all weathers.

League matches especially go ahead even if it rains (we do stop however if the rain is so heavy that the cochonnet floats away....)


And games can get serious.
So out comes the tape measure....
