Boules is a name given to a group of games which involve the throwing of metal balls. Two of the most popular boule games are pétanque and boule lyonnaise. The aim of these games is to get the large, heavy balls as close to the small 'jack' as you can. It is very popular, especially in France, but also Italy, where it may often be seen played in any open space in villages and towns. It is also similar to 'bocce' and 'bowls'. Jaques were the first and sole agent for the French game when it landed on UK shores. so we can boast that we introduced Boule to the UK!
