We know that in some parts of the world the weather is somewhat inconstant, but that is no problem for those of us who love this beautiful sport. Petanque can be played in virtually all climates, one of the most difficult games is rain.
We can suffer from the water, but the wind could be the factor that most affects the game, despite these factors against it, nothing prevents us from doing our best and enjoying a beautiful cloudy day to take the challenge.
The great professionals comment, when it comes to playing with rain, always carry an umbrella, to avoid the contact of the drops with the eyes and that does not affect us when throwing. Another important fact is to always clean your balls with a handkerchief, preferably keep it as dry as possible. The water in the ball could make our hand slip too much and our shot goes wrong.
The terrain becomes a bit more complicated (although it depends on how you see it and it also depends on the type of terrain), if you play on the ground, the field will most likely come at a time when it gets muddy, although this is not pretext to stop playing, can be affected the plays and shots.
There is no major impediment to stop playing petanque, the weather has never been a pretext.
So go out anytime, friends. Petanque is a sport for all times of the year.
