Winter INDOOR Petanque

27 Feb

Have you ever played INDOOR PETANQUE on a hardwood floor? There is a petanque group in WHEATON Illinois that plays twice a week. The Chicago winter has absolutely no influence on whether they play or not. They ALWAYS play.

Here is a VIDEO LINK that captures the true spirit of INDOOR PETANQUE in Chicago. Click on the link or cut and paste into browser window.

After you view the video, be sure to leave USB Studios a comment and thank them for supporting our game.

    Very interested about indoor pétanque. Are the indoor pétanque boules are soft and light.?

    We don’t have the same weather that in Chicago but a lot of rain. We are thinking for Edmonds of a court that would be covered.

    We are a small club of petanque in the center of France. Our village is called PONT DU CHATEAU (CASTEL BRIDGE), it is situated near Clermont-Ferrand.
    Clermont Ferrand is the headquarters of Michelin Tire Company.
    It is really a pleasure to see that your club of petanque shares the same purpose as our association. Friendship and conviviality.
    In fact, the petanque is mainly a pretext to meet friends and spend with them a good moment.
    Our congratulations for your web site and the events which you organize….mainly your wonderful barbecue…hum !
    If you want, you can consult our own web site:
    By Google: “petanque a pont du château” and you will have our web site
    Or also with the following address:
    Unfortunately, naturally, our site is in the French language !
    Sorry for my very bad English, but I am now retired and I do not practice your language from 5 years.
    Again, our congratulations and long life to Chicago petanque

    Best regards from france

    Jean-Yves (Président of the « Joyeuse Pétanque de Pont du Château »)
