Brief Rules of Petanque - A French boules game

A player stands inside a circle and throws the jack (a small coloured ball)

From the circle, the same team throws one metal boule towards the 

jack. The opposition then throws a boule attempting to get closer to 

the jack. If unsuccessful, they continue to throw until they get closer 

or run out of boules, 

The teams seek to gain 13 points to win the game.

Why not come and try it out  - it is fun. Below is an image of our teams at Santa Susana Spain on 14th October 2022.
