The game of pétanque - An artistic approach











Here guys, I talk about a serious thing : the game of pétanque. The pétanque is the latest branch on the enormous tree of jeu de boules. Probably created in 1907 or 1910 in La Ciotat by Jules le Noir (there are several versions of the birth of petanque, but the version of Jules le Noir is the most probable one). There are, worldwide, more than 600.000 licensed pétanque players. Pétanque is by far the most practised game of bowls on earth, undoubtedly because of the simplicity of its rules. And has also inspired numerous artists !
