Boules or Petanque, this French favourite is a perfect family game. This beautifully crafted set, complete with wooden jack and measure, makes a great gift for friends and family.
Our four player Boules set comes packed in its own secure metal carry case. The set has eight metal boules identified by clear engraved patterns on the balls.

Garden Boules is a fun garden game that is easy to set up and play. The game is played by first tossing a coin to pick the player to go first. This player then stands at one end of the pitch(or lawn area that you will be using to play the game). This is spot from which all players will subsequently bowl from. The jack is then thrown down the pitch. In theory it should land about two thirds up the pitch but in the yard or on the beach it is not that important.

The first player then throws one Boule towards the Jack or Cochennet, aiming to get as close as possible. The next player steps up and attempts to do the same while also trying to remove the other players Boule by knocking it away from the Jack.

Once all the players have thrown all their Boules the winner is decided by being the player with his or her Boule closest to the Jack. This can be a hot topic of debate and to help with this tough decision we have included a simple measure in with our Boule set.
