Bocce/Petanque

   
SCHEDULE: 2nd & 4th Tuesdays 9:15AM
LOCATION: Wilde Park, Glen Rock
EMAIL SUBJECT: Bocce

Petanque is a sport that falls into the category of boules sports, along with raffa, bocce, boule lyonnaise, lawn bowls, and crown green bowling. In all of these sports, players or teams play their boules/balls towards a target ball. In pétanque the objective is to score points by having boules closer to the target than the opponent after all boules have been thrown. This is achieved by throwing or rolling boules closer to the small target ball, officially called a jack,or by hitting the opponents' boules away from the target, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.

The main difference between bocce ball and petanque is the playing technique. Bocce ball is a bowling game where you bowl the boule, while petanque is more of a tossing game where you throw the boule. Send a contact email for more information about the game and/or about joining the group.
