The Paris's "Petanque" Stadium

OK, here we are, the spot for the petanque's players in Paris. The perfect place to challenge your friends in terrible petanque's game. But do you know petanque?

Petanque is a form of boule where the goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a_cochonnet_(jack). You can learn more about petanque on wikipedia

In Paris, we play petanque just for fun, from 7 to 77 years old. That’s a good way to meet friend and to have a good time with them. This place is perfect for that. It’s quiet and peaceful, and a lot of different kind of people are passing by. The best time to go there is by Sunday. After a good Saturday’s night party, that’s a cool spot to chill .

The spot is not far from different cool Parisian’s spot . (bastille, republique, canal saint martin,oberkampf,…) So , you can make a little petanque’s game and finish after in a good pub not far from the stadium :)

If one day you ‘re on vacation in france, and you’re going to play petanque, here are some french expressions that you can use at every moment during a game :
- " oh alors, tu tires ou tu pointes" (that’s the most used sentence, you can use it everytime, the players around you will be happy to hear it…)
- “ah, ça sent le fanni !” (it means that you’re going to win reaaaally easily. Be care before to say it, that the player in front of you isn’t a kind of psychopath…)
-“bon, un petit riri?” (it’s time to drink something! )

P.S : I saw that some lomographers were petanque’s player hehe, so if one day you’re coming to Paris, we could organize the first “lomo world petanque cup” ;) !
