The Edmonds Pétanque Club is holding its Bastille Day Tournament on Sunday, and you’re invited.
Pétanque, popular in France, involves throwing metal balls (known as boules) as close as possible to a small wooden ball (jack or “cochonnet”). While throwing a boule, a player must keep his or her two feet on the ground and within a starting circle drawn on the ground.
Organizers say rules can be mastered in five minutes or less, and the club has extra boules to lend.

“Even if you don’t play, coming for lunch, a little wine and watching the finals could be very fun to do,” says Michelle Martin, president of the Edmonds Pétanque Club. “Watching the expert players in the finals is always exciting and also a great opportunity to discover that sport.”
Registration costs $10 per player, and you must register by Friday. The event, also hosted by the Seattle Pétanque Club, will be at the Edmonds Civic Playfield, near the corner of Sixth Avenue and Bell Street.
