Pétanque is a French sport that has some similarity to bocce ball and horseshoes. It is a social sport where singles, couples, and newbies can have fun in a relaxed competition. It was invented to be egalitarian so that even someone in a wheelchair can play; new and experienced players are shuffled every game. Easy to learn, it takes time to master. Hopefully, some day it may be come an Olympic sport (if Paris ever gets the bid). Maybe then, we can all tryout for the USA Pétanque Team. More details at www.petanqueannarbor.org.
