Choosing your Boules Set

Boules sets are normally made from plastic, wood or metal and are often varying sizes. Most sets come with Boules which are either different colours or have different designs on them allowing players to identify which one is theirs. Boules sets can be purchased with 6 or 8 boules allowing either 2, 3 or 4 players to join in the game. Some sets come with 6 balls with 2 engraved patterns on meaning two players can have 3 boules each. This is what most competitive style sets include.

Our sets are designed for leisure games and come with 8 boules allowing 4 players to join in with this entertaining game. The Boules we include are made from a polished steel and have 4 different engravings on them allowing players to tell which one is which after they have been thrown.

A Jack or Cochonnet is included within both sets that we have to offer and this is thrown first with players having to throw their boules as close to this as they can. We also include a handy measure tool which prevents disagreements if there is a tricky call to decide who is closest.
