Bright, Colourful balls Supplied with storage bag Lighter than average Petanque balls Ideal for playing outdoors Great for group activities Petanque is a form of boules where the goal is to toss or roll balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally "piglet") or jack, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. This set is made from solid moulded balls, designed for outdoor petanque on grass or gravel. The balls are much lighter than the ordinary petanque outdoor ball, at only approximately 300g per ball, making them perfect for those who suffer with a weaker grip or painful joints. The 12 balls are supplied in a strong nylon storage bag, containing 3 balls in 4 different colours and 1 orange target ball. The balls are supplied in vivid colours, to enable players with poor vision to distinguish between the different balls easily.
