Indonesia Olympic Commitee - Petanque



Petanque, also known as 'boules', is a version of bowls that is very popular in France and in French speaking countries. It's played similarly to other forms of bowls but with a few significantly differences. The aim is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small ball called a cochonnet (jack) while standing with the feet together in a small circle. The sport was incorporated into the Asian Indoor Games in 2009, while made its official debut in the 2003 Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam.
