What is Petanque?

Playing Petanque at the Amelia River Waterfront

Petanque (pay-tonk) is a cousin of both horseshoes and bocce, the Italian bowling game.  The game originated in the south of France in the early 1900's.  No special skill is required, seniors can play with children, and the equipment is inexpensive.  The game is simple, relaxing, fun, and a perfect way to make new friends.  For more information on the game, visit the Petanque America Website.
