Affordable Quality Practice/Learning Petanque Set
on September 26, 2011
This set was accurately described so that I received exactly what I expected and in a timely manner. The carrying case for these substantially weighty boules is sturdy and attractive so I can take my set anywhere. The six boules are also shinily attractive, and I saw many just like them in YouTube videos of people playing Petanque. The set also includes the jack, or cochonnet, and a measuring line. This game is so much fun and we appreciate the fact that anyone of almost any age can play this simple game of skill in rolling or tossing balls. I appreciate the fact that the company cautions that these are not intended for tournament use, but are great practice boules for dirt or grass play. It is clearly stated that these should not be played on concrete or gravel, but that once some measure of skill is acquired that stimulates a desire to enter tournaments one may move up to a sturdier tournament set. If you wish to learn how to play Petanque without a large investment for tournament quality boules, this is the set for you.
