Following an idea from David B and the creation of a court by John G we now have a boules
court at Whitehead Park!! Boules, or Petanque as it is sometimes called, is the game loved
by the French, but played all over the world. Our court is shown in the pictures (link below)
with boules courtesy of David L. It is to full international size and will accommodate one
game at each end. So, as a member of Bury Croquet Club you can play boules as well -singles, doubles or triples.
see the 'BOULES RULES' tab for further details
