Petanque boules are not provided. 

In pétanque the objective is to score points by having boules closer to the target than the opponent after all boules have been thrown. This is achieved by throwing or rolling boules closer to the small target ball, officially called a jack or by hitting the opponents' boules away from the target, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. 

The game is normally and best played on hard dirt or gravel. The game is well suited for participants with disabilities.
