Pétanque

EN: The first time I played Pétanque was last year on holiday on the island of Île d'Oléron with my friends, which basically means that I was one of the 17 million people in France who play this game during their summer holidays. Once I knew the rules, I immediately fell for this game which was originated in 1907 in La Ciotat in Provence. We played a casual play where each of us played as individuals. The first player throws the jack (a small wooden ball also called cochonnet) 6–10 metres away and the goal of the game is to throw the metal balls as close as possible to jack, while standing inside a starting circle (which you draw on the ground/sand) with both feet on the ground. When I saw people playing Pétanque in Jardin des Tuileries, I remembered just how much fun we had playing on the beach while watching the sun go down. Hopefully this year I will play again. 

SK: Prvykrat som hrala Pétanque vlani na dovolenke na ostrove Île d'Oléron so svojimi priatelmi, co v podstate znamena, ze som bola jednou zo 17 milionov ludi vo Francuzsku, ktori hraju prave tuto hru pocas letnych prazdnin. Akonahle som pochopila pravidla okamzite som si tuto hru, ktora vznikla v roku 1907 v La Ciotat v Provensalsku, zamilovala. Hrali sme lezernu hru, kde kazdy z nas hral samostatne. Prvy hrac hodi jack (mala drevena gula nazyvana tiez cochonnet) 6 - 10 m do dialky a cielom hry je hadzat kovove gule co najblizsie ku drevenej lopticke jack. Musite stat vo vnutri kruhu ktory ste nakreslili na zem alebo do piesku s oboma nohami na zemi. Ked som videla ako ludia hraju Pétanque pri zahradach Jardin des Tuileries, spomenula som si kolko zabavy sme zazili ked sme ju hrali na plazi a popri tom sledovali krasny zapad slnka. Dufam, ze tento rok si zahram znova.
