Petanque/bocce courts are now available at Mid County Park in James City County. JCC Parks and Recreation provided court space and construction materials and the Mid County Park Petanque Group members built the courts and will maintain them.
Petanque can be played by two teams of one to four players. Metal balls, known as boules, are thrown with the goal of placing them closest to the target.
The courts are open during park hours and players should bring their own boules and equipment. If you prefer to play with the Group, games are held every Thursday and Sunday at 2 p.m. For those wanting to try out the game, there will be instruction and extra boules available.
