laid back battle of boule

The game is on at the 15th annual Kalimotxo cup boule (or pétanque or boccie) tournament at Södra Latin school yard. Some twenty players in eight teams battled for the cup. Well, it's a pretty laid back battle as you can see. This is in the middle of an exciting round.

Looks very exciting indeed, you obviously have to be super fit to have a chance of winning here!

Neat! The players are quite a bit younger than those you will find in France. :)

I thought only Italians and the French played bocce.

Jacob said...

Oops! My bad. What's the difference between bocce and boule?

Swedish people play boule?!!

So laid back, in fact, that this would be an appropriate sport for yours-truly.
