Petangue

Petangue

The game of boules, otherwise known as pétanque, is perhaps the sport that is closest to French hearts. The objective of the game is to toss or roll hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet or jack, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. What makes it so appealing, is that you can be way ahead for a while, yet lose a second later, or vice versa.

Will you give it a try?
