Extreme petanque WTF ?!
Extreme petanque is a petanque variant based upon the classic petanque basics:
- Both feet on the ground: no jumping or running!
- Use the classic petanque throwing technique!
- 13 points wins the match
Except, there are no limits.
Go out there & play wherever you want. Combine all sorts of obstacles, elevation changes and different types of surfaces.
Extreme petanque offers a lot of variation, unexpected twists and major excitement, both for the players as the spectators.
By adding those elements the game becomes slightly more random, which levels out the competition and increases the accessibility.
Big construction sites, forests or abandoned buildings are typical spots to play extreme petanque.
