Can anyone tell me what a "Petang Court" is? I have friends who live in Spain about to make or construct on. I do not wish to appear stupid when I speak to them next. Brian

hi there ! it is petanque, a game we play a lot in my country - France - i built a court in my summer garden in France a few years ago. it is like boules game and the little wooden ball that is part of the set is called 'le cochonnet' which means little piggy ! the court is a stretch of about 20 metres and 3 foot wide, flattened and slightly sanded, great game xx

The similar game played here in northern Spain is called Bolos and has a serious following, with a Bolos game often being the highlight of village fiestas and games are advertised (like football) in the local newspaper. I'm still trying to work out the rules!!!???!!!
