Why Boules is Cool

Bonjour! Hello!

Pétanque (also known as Boules) is a cool, low cost, game that almost any age can play, almost anywhere.

Pétanque is cool because it can be played on most outdoor surfaces, without any setup. Bocce is a similar game, but it needs a smooth, prepared court with markers and sideboards.

Yes, it’s the French game with an interesting name, but no, it’s not just for French people. It’s a game that Atlanta – our international city, is ready for! It’s a game for every member of the family.

It’s easy to learn, a challenge to master. It’s a fun, social, addictive game for all ages. All skill levels are welcome to join the fun. Can’t play? We’ll teach you!
