What on earth is petanque ..? Petanque
, pronounced "pay-tonk", one of Europe's most popular outdoor games, is a cousin of both horseshoes and of the Italian bowling game called 'bocce'. The game originated in the South of France in the early 1900's.
The aim is to toss, or roll a number of hollow steel balls ("boules") as close as possible to a small wooden target ball, called "but" or "cochonnet" (French for "piglet"). Players take turns and the team that ends up nearest to the target ball when all balls are played, wins.
Unlike horseshoes, where the aim stake is fixed, petanques' target ball may be hit at any time, which can completely upset the score at the last second.
And whereas official 'bocce' rules call for a smooth, prepared court with markers and sideboards, petanque can be played on most outdoor surfaces, without any setup.
No special skill is required, adults can play with children, and the equipment is inexpensive. The game of petanque is simple, relaxing, lots of fun, and a perfect way to make new friends. Last but not least, petanque can be - and usually is - played while enjoying a cool drink (the French will often go for pastis) and tasty snacks.

Petanque for beginners: Playing equipment
In time you will need your own set of boule, but don't be in too much of a hurry to buy them yet, you may well regret your hastiness if you buy the wrong boule. Yes, you will want to own your own boule, to practise with and look after, and of course to show others that you are serious about the sport. The thing is, do you really know what you want? Full story
Petanque for beginners: Throwing your boule
It will feel quite strange when throwing a boule for the first time with the palm of your hand facing downwards,. "Surely", you think, "if the palm of my hand faced upward I could throw a boule much more easily"? The truth is, yes, you could throw more easily, but could you throw both accurately and use the correct amount of power required? Full story
Petanque for beginners: Three main pointing throws
There are probably three main pointing throws in Ptanque:-
a.) "The High Lob" (French- la porte sometimes la plombe)

Petanque is extremely simple, just like horseshoes. There's a target, and you have to get as close to it as possible.
What makes it so appealing, is that you can be way ahead for a while, yet lose a second later, or vice versa. Because nothing is decided until the last player plays the very last boule. If he or she moves the aim ball or kicks an opponent ball out of the way, the layout of the boules - and thus your score - may change dramatically.
The Basic Rules
These are illustrated and will get you started in no time at all.
The Official Rules
make provision for any eventuality while you're playing: from losing the aim ball to dogs running over the court!
Who can play this game?
France, especially the Provence, where petanque originated, has always been a popular holiday destination, so more and more tourists started to play with the locals, bought sets and introduced the game back home, in Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Belgium, Scandinavia, Spain etc.. On the other hand, many French expatriates would pack up a set of boules when they moved, and the game spread throughout the world.
What kind of court is used?
