Links to UK boules/ equipment suppliers:
Before you buy any boules check with a coach to see the size and weight you need. Also, try out other members' boules.
If you think you may want to play in regional or national competitions* you will need competition boules
NOT Leisure /recreational boules.
Also, familiarise yourself with the Official Rules of Petanque
Magnetic jacks (coches)
have been approved by the FIPJP but because they are heavier than 18g
they ARE NOT allowed in competitions*.
*Note: Our club games are not regarded as competitions).
