Boule or Petanque in Casares on the Costa del Sol
24 September 2009 @ 21:56

Casares del Sol boule courtPetanque is a game played all over the world and often associated with the beach. And many will know the game as boule. On first impressions it seems a simple game, as do many sports on first impressions, but skill is needed to win. Although its an ideal sport for all age groups whether they have played before or not.

Petanque is played on a rectangular area called a piste with boules to throw. Although many people play the game on any area of the beach or grassland. Casares beach has a petanque piste, part way between Casares beach car park and Sabinillas, and any one can play here. And there is another piste at Casares del Sol apartment in PM4 gardens.

Its often thought of as a game in Mediterranean countries, France in particular, but is played all over the world and many UK villages have their own teams.
