Pétanque Group 2 meets on Thursday mornings at 10am at Restaurante Brevis, Calle Ciudad Real, 03724 Moraira, Alicant.    It’s a very easy game to learn and you can be winning almost immediately.  Our games are very light hearted and sociable, and afterwards, we go for coffee at the bar.  It’s a really fun morning out.

What is Pétanque?

Pétanque (in French) is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet or Jack.

The object of the game is to throw your balls – usually with an arched back-spin – so that they land closer to the small object ball (jack) than those of your opponent, or strike and drive the object ball toward your other balls and away from your opponent’s.

The only really essential equipment is a set of steel boules (three minimum). A set costs anywhere from 12 euros upwards from most Chinese shops. However come along and try a game first to see if you want to join the group, and buy your own set after that if you do then decide to join.
