Are you ready for a new sporting experience?
Do you enjoy being outdoors in a social and competitive environment?
Then it’s time you tried PETANQUE
Pétanque, pronounced “pay-tonk”, one of Europe’s most popular outdoor games, is a cousin of horseshoes, shuffleboard and of the Italian bowling game called ‘bocce’.
The aim is to toss or roll metal balls (“boules”) as close as possible to a small wooden target ball, called “cochonnet” (French for “piglet”). Players take turns and the team that ends up nearest to the target ball when all balls are played wins the round.
No special skill is required, all ages and physical abilities can play, and the equipment is inexpensive. Pétanque is simple, relaxing, lots of fun, and a great way to make new friends.
