Looking for a sport where you don’t have to move?

The French came up with petanque centuries ago and on weekends

you’ll find an active colony of players in Marin County. This classic Provencal

game involves tossing metal balls while standing still (vs. bocce where

the balls are wood or resin and you run and roll, like bowling).

Petanque is more closely related to horseshoes.

Players are always eager to welcome newcomers.
