Did you know that pétanque, the traditional game which is synonymous with Provence, cicadas and pastis, takes its name from the Provençal dialect expression “pès tancats”, meaning “feet planted”?
Unlike the Lyonnais game of boules in which players take a run-up, pétanque is played with the feet together. We’ll let you in on other secrets of this wonderful and friendly game as you take part in a game of boules… in a private courtyard, on the seashore, in one of the region’s picturesque villages or even in your hotel or business premises.
Pétanque is a game of skill, but that’s not all… you also need concentration and composure. Nor must we overlook its strategic dimension.
Closer relationships increase motivation. Team cohesion developed outside their normal environment will enable team members to focus, engage with each other more and work effectively together.
