Basic game & behaviour rules

Pétanque Union Bois le Duc has a social and open character. The association is there for society, not specifically for recreational or competitive players. Sociability is paramount, but just like any other sports association, the game/sport is the common denominator. Whether you want to throw a boule in an accessible way or are competitive: you are very welcome with us! 😊


Because jeu de boules (officially called ‘pétanque’) is often played very freely, it is good to know the basic rules of the game and behaviour to ensure that the game/sport is played and experienced in the same way. Mind you, rules have no effect if you don’t treat each other pleasantly, but above all respectfully. After all, we are all human and we each have our own instructions for use. You will notice that by applying these rules you will like the game even more. You create peace and overview for yourself and others. In that respect it is just like in traffic: if everyone follows the rules, you are relaxed in/on your vehicle and you drive a lot better! Oh yes, for ‘road safety’, playing with open footwear such as sandals is not allowed. 😉

Official competition boules

Within 3 months after joining the association, the association member must be in possession of official competition boules. Our association regularly has second-hand boules for sale, which are sold with a minimal profit with the aim of providing as many players as possible with sound material.

Association clothing
