French Club Highlight; Pétanque! Pétanque is a French sport, similar to lawn bowls, if you’ve played that. In Pétanque, the objective is to score points by tossing your boules closer to the target than your opponent. You must stand in a circle with both feet on the ground, and either try to get your boules closer to the target or by hitting your opponents boules away. The target is called a cochonnet. The game is normally played on hard dirt, gravel, or grass, in less professional situations. French club do tons of neat activities like this, visit Madame Jaggi in room 117 to find out more!
