In Pétanque the goal is to toss hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally, piglet) or jack, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. Pétanque is normally played on hard dirt or gravel.

All members are welcome to participate in this gentle, leisurely sport, which is also suitable for people with some physical disabilities.
