Jaques 8 Boule Wooden Box Set
Jaques' 8 boule polished wooden box set includes 8 polished chrome boules, of competition quality, contained in a solid pine box with natural rope handles.
"Boules" is a name given to a group of games which involve the throwing of metal balls. Two of the most popular boule games are pétanque and boule lyonnaise. The aim of these games is to get the large, heavy balls as close to the small 'jack' as you can. It is very popular, especially in France, but also Italy, where it may often be seen played in any open space in villages and towns. It is also similar to 'bocce' and 'bowls'.
Jaques were the first and sole agent for the french game when it landed on UK shores. This superb, polished chrome boule set comes in a solid pine box with natural rope handles and is packed carefully to protect the boules whilst they are in transit.
Boule makes a great beach or backyard game and the fine quality boules used in this set are superior to other models on the market today.
