Petanque a boule journey.

Petanque. A new vision to introduce new players.

I always say “The great thing about petanque is anyone can play it.” I follow with” The terrible thing about petanque is anyone can play it.”

Now that may sound a bit hypocritical but there needs to be explanation behind that short statement.

Get ready it is a long explanation and will cover many parts. Picking up a boule for the first time can be a great feeling, many have seen the game played in France whilst on holiday and were intrigued by what was happening on the shady dusty area near the campsite or café. There seemed to be no order or concept that was understood by the onlooker. The game seemed easy enough as the players walked to a circle and threw their boule towards that tiny target boule. Could it be that simple?
