Rules of Pétanque 2017

FIPJP has updated the official rules of Pétanque with effect from January 2017. It is important that all players are aware of the [changes to the] rules. All players are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the new rules to avoid disputes on the piste. Your attention is drawn [among others] to Article 7 – players feet when throwing; Article 17 Players behaviour and Article 21 – time to play; which have caused some debate in the past. As one who knows – bad habits can be hard to break – so please try and keep to the rules but above all  ENJOY! See here for the current rules of the game. official-rules-for-the-sport-of-petanque-2017
