Pétanque is a sport that originated in France in the early 1900s, loosely translates to ‘feet together’ and refers to the player having both his legs together firmly on the ground while making a throw. Pétanque falls into the category of boules sports, along with Raffa, bocce, boule lyonnaise and to some degree, lawn bowls and crown green bowling. The aim of the game is to be the first player or team to score thirteen points. Points are scored by having one or more of your boules closer to the target than those of your opponent, after all boules have been thrown.
Petanque isn’t a common sport in Singapore, with many people scarcely even knowing what the sport is about. However, there are more than a hundred petanque courts in Singapore, and finding a court to have some fun in doesn't have to be hard. The Housing Development Board (HDB) has been building petanque pits through the years in order to encourage seniors to take up the sport, and garner interest among the youths.
Whilst pétanque is played socially amongst friends and family, it is also played competitively at regional, national and international level. At Decathlon, you will find Boules meant for leisure and competition alike, suitable for all ages and competitive difficulty.

Petanque, or boules, is the classic French game, similar to bowls, that can be played on many different surfaces. Boules is a great game to take on holiday because it can easily be played almost anywhere: on sand, gravel or grass pitches.
What is Pétanque?
In Pétanque the aim of the game is to score points by having boules closer to the target than other players after all boules have been thrown. Players either throw or roll boules closer to the small target ball, called a cochonnet or hit their opponents' boules away from the target, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.
The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel and can be played in public parks, or in places called boulodromes.
It's quick to get started and can be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. Also, once you buy a boules set you will have everything you need to play, the boules themselves and the jack.
