The game of Petanque or Boule is played between two teams of 1, 2 or 3 players. In singles or doubles each player uses 3 boules. In triples 2 boules only per player. However, for leisure play, 2 boules per player are satisfactory in any game. The game begins by tossing a coin to decide who should begin the game and also have the right to place the small ball, the “Butt” or “Jack”. The first player then traces on the ground a circle large enough to stand in (.35m - .50m diameter) and throws the “Butt” forward, a distance between 6 and 10 metres. If he throws it outside these distances his team has the right to try twice again, otherwise the opposing team attempts to do the same. Make sure you choose your Boules Set carefully.
