Petanque or Petanque Rules

La petanque, bocce or bocca It is a sport that faces two teams, these can be 3 players (triples), 2 players (doubles) or 1 player (individual) and these are its rules


The team chosen (at random) to throw the cushion or goal must draw a circle on the ground so that all players throw the ball from that circle if they do not have an official Obut shooting zone


The team that begins to play the way we use is drawn is to put the balls of the 2 teams on a cloth and randomly stir them and throw themselves towards the goal, the team that is closest to the pig throws first Any player in the team chosen choose the starting point

The feet of the players cannot leave the circumference before the thrown ball touches the ground. This player throws the Goal at a distance between 6 and 10 meters. The bowling alley must be at least 1 meter from any obstacle (wall, tree, etc.).

The goal is to throw the balls as close as possible to the pig. It is played in turns, one turn each team, but in some cases you can pass the turn this depends a lot on the teams strategy


When all players have thrown all the balls, each team's point count is made. The score depends on the number of balls (from the same team) that have come closest to the target.

Example, if the 1 team has 3 balls closer, at 5 cm, 7 cm and 10 cm, and the ball closest to the bowling alley of the 2 team is at 12 cm, the 1 team gets 3 points. In case of a tie, each team gets one point.

The game ends when a team reaches 13 points.

there are two very marked shooting styles in this sport orIt is not punctuation and the other hit.

The first one focuses on the technique to bring the balls as close as possible to the target. This means that you must know the terrain with precision to calculate precise shots, the variants can be many including the type of ground, inclination, looseness of the gravel all this with knowledge of many games played

The second one focuses on precise shots to remove the balls of the opponents from the scoring zone, developing the perfect curve in the throwing and the force necessary to make a clean and successful intervention

The launch positions are multiple. The most common are standing, with semi-flexed legs or squatting.

Follow these tips to get maximum efficiency at your launch:

- Hold the ball firmly in the hollow of the hand with the half-folded thumb
- The back of the hand is what comes first in the shot
- To achieve a straight shot, it is important that you keep the position in balance, either standing, squatting or an intermediate position.
