Introduction to Pétanque

No matter which park one is passing in Toulouse, one can definitely come across the local sport of Pétanque in action on a daily basis! The basic idea is to throw heavy metal balls as close as possible to the cochonnet, which is a small “target” ball. Yesterday, students had the opportunity to test their skills!

So…which one is closest to the “cochonnet”?

Things can get heated and competitive players sometimes use a yard stick to measure the exact distance between the balls and the cochonnet!
