Pétanque comes from the Provençal "joint feet": pé = pied, and tanque = stuck together. Culturally it is also part of the Provençal culture together with Pastis, the French equivalent of Greek Ouzo.
Pétanque is an also an opportunity to argue about the respective distance of the balls to the jack (called "cochonet", or piglet in French).
Instructors will carry leaflets about the game and even run some drills before the games begin.
Two courts are available to players during this time period, and there can be 2 games going on per court.
Fun and easy enough for ages, so bring the kids! The event is free, if you have a set of "boules", plastic for kids or steel for grown-ups, please bring your set. We have normally enough "boules" for all, but better safe than sorry.
We can accommodate up to 24 players at a time, and up to 40 people in the area.
Food and drinks are available for purchase at Pompilio's.
To register, simply send us an email, with your name(s) and the number of kids and adults in your party.
