Discover Pétanque

Pétanque, a lesser-known game, is a sport that requires aiming precision and concentration. It is a form of boules where the goal is to toss or roll hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet, and it can be played either one on one or in teams. The current form of pétanque originated in 1910 in France, but its roots can be traced to ancient Greece and Rome.

This activity is realized in collaboration with the Pétancoliques d’Athènes club.
