Everyone who plays boules seems to have their own particular way of throwing. And it's fascinating to watch.
In the smaller photograph (click to enlarge) you see the boules field, laid out in lines for the competition. Today they are playing doublettes - or doubles.
There are three types of competition in boules:
- three players per team (two boules per player), called triples
- two players per team (three boules per player), called doubles
- one player per team (three boules per player), called singles
