What a great game! I love pétanque and Nice is a brilliant place to watch groups of players in parks – among the olive trees in Cimiez for example – where you’ll find games in progress most afternoons.

You’ll also find clubs and open pistes dotted around the town, on the sea-front near the airport, on the slopes of the Colline du Chateau and in the Vieille Ville. You can see some of the clubs in Nice here

Check out to see photos from the recent massive petanque competition held in Nice.
