Pétanque at Champs de Mars

Throughout France you see people playing this game in parks and at the beach. Pétanque is like Bocce but does not require a special court and can really be played anywhere. The game originated in 1907 in La Ciotat, in Provence and is uniquely French as horseshoes is uniquely American. You can buy a print of these players at Champs de Mars near the Eiffel Tower at my commercial site by clicking here.

    • Bocce is played on a standard size court and in Pentanque the players draw the court with chalk before they start. Also I believe Bocce has different sized boules but I am no expert. Thanks for the comment!
