SOFT petanque boule


3 petanque boules and 1 jack.

Colour fastness of the black colour

The colour lightens with every game. The speed at which it lightens can vary from 1 month to never. Perspiration on the player's hand and especially its acidity determines this speed. Certain players may therefore keep their boules black for more than a year while other players quickly obtain a satiny colour.

How to choose the right petanque boule

Choose your petanque boule based on:
1. Desired bounce quality (hard, semi-soft, or soft boule)
2. Size of your hand (diameter).
3. Your playing style, which determines the weight of your boule (heavier for pointers and lighter for shooters).4. The boule's feel in your hand (if you can't decide between two sizes).

What does hardness mean for a petanque boule?

The boule's hardness is expressed in the ROCKWELL "HRC" unit or in kg/mm².
For example, 39 HRC corresponds to 124 kg/mm².
The higher the number, the harder the boule. The harder the boule, the less likely it is to get damaged, and the higher its elasticity, and vice versa.
Regular players that use soft boules should consider regularly replacing them to keep a high quality of game play.


Our petanque competition boules are hollow. Here is how they are made:
- A lump of steel heated to 1000°C is flattened and then stamped or forged into a hemisphere.
- These hemispheres are welded together and rotated until they are spherical.
- The boule is then engraved, baked, and dipped into water to obtain the desired hardness.
- Finally, they are polished or varnished and then inspected.

How to clean your petanque boules?

After each match, wipe off dust with a clean cloth. Once a month, oil your petanque boules to prevent them from rusting. Cleaning regularly lengthens the lifespan of your petanque boules while also ensuring the quality of your match.
