Pétanque, traditional game in Provence

Pétanque is a traditional game played outdoors. It is played with metal balls that are thrown towards a little pig, a smaller ball.

The goal of the game is to get as close as possible to the pig with its balls, trying to place them closer than those of other players. Les joueurs lancent leurs boules à tour de rôle en se tenant immobiles, les pieds bien ancrés au sol.

We score points based on the proximity of the balls to the pig. The player or team with the most points wins the game.

Petanque is a friendly game that is usually played with friends or family, in parks, gardens or on specially designed grounds. It is a simple and fun game that can be played by people of all ages.
