Rules to play Petanque
In petanque, players throw while standing in a circle. Traditionally, the circle was simply scratched in the dirt. Starting around 2005, red plastic prefabricated circles were introduced and they are now very popular. Some clubs prefer to draw the circle the traditional way, while others prefer to use the plastic circles. A circle drawn on the ground must be 35 50 cm in diameter, while a plastic circle must have an inside diameter of 50 cm.
