The Riverside Hotel has the newest and greatest Petanque court in Boise, ID!
Petanque is the French version of Bocce Ball.
Pétanque is played by two, four or six people in two teams, or players can compete as individuals in casual play. In the singles and doubles games each player has three boules (balls); in triples they have only two. A coin is tossed to decide which side goes first. The starting team draws a circle on the ground which is 15-20 inches in diameter: all players must throw their boules from within this circle, with both feet remaining on the ground. The first player throws the jack 20-30 feet away; it must be at least 3 feet from the boundary. Whomever scores 13 points first, WINS!
