 How to Play Petanque- Basic Rules Petanque is played with hollow steel balls known as boules, and a small wooden target ball cochonet or jack.The game is usually played on a gravel topped terrain at least 12mts long. Teams can be singles, doubles or triples. The team winning the toss, throws the jack and a boule. The team which does not have the closest boule to the jack after each throw, keeps throwing their boules until they either get closest or they run out of boules to throw, at which point it is the other team's turn to play. When all boules have been thrown, then the 'end' is completed. Scores are compiled and players procede to the next end. Games can be up to 11 or 13 or an agreed time.
