This game comes from the South of France. It's played with iron balls that you hold in your hand. You can play with 2 or three balls and a little one of the size of a walnut made of plastic or wood.
The game consists in First, throwing the little one between a distance of 6 to 10 meters, and then the players throw the balls in order to get as close as possible from the little ball. Each player plays until they get the closest, and then the othe players do the same.
The winner is the player or team who scores 13.
That's it; tell me if you understand.
Have a good day !

|You have six iron balls and one small plastic ball that we call the ‘cochonnet’ (piglet ?). So each participant got two iron ball. We throw the cochonnet and the the whole point of the game is to throw your balls the closest to it. Or to kick off other participant balls.|
is pentaque a very strange sport?

Petanque is a sport. I practice it since I'm 6.
It is a sport which is played with balls there is one whiwh is smaller and you have to put your balls as nearas you can to earn points. A game is finished when a team has 13 points.
You can play one against one and each player has 3 balls. Or two against two each player has also 3balls and the last possibility 3against 3 and each player has 2 balls. If a ball or your opponent is too close to the smaller ball ( what you have to aim ) you can remove it by sending inside a ball very hardly.
It isn't easy to explain but I hope you have understood a little
