Play Petanque in Paris

 stars

Play a leisurely game of French ‘boules’ (balls), known as Petanque, just as the French do, with a glass of wine in your hand! This popular game is played all over Europe but its roots are firmly set in France, where locals of all ages play it in just about every village. Metal balls are thrown from a standing circle toward a wooden ball called a cochonnet. The aim of the game is to knock your opponent’s ball out of the way. Enjoy a 1.5-hour match In Paris’ tranquil Dauphine Gardens, learning all the tactics and lingo from your host to help you become a master at this much-loved sport. The experience includes two glasses of wine, soft drinks and snacks to fortify you for competition.
