We all know there are 60 million national football team coaches in France, but what if there were actually also 60 million petanque fans?
In any case, for 4 generations, we have been doing everything we can to support all those who play petanque, both true fanatics and occasional players.
With a brand new OBUT.COM website, a new patent for the Leisure range, new wooden boules for the little ones and our 100 % customisable boules and pouches, we are doing more for you than ever!
In town or in the country, whether you're playing with friends or facing the world's best, whether you play in the sun or in the moonlight, on a pitch outside a billiards hall or one in quarry, we believe more than ever in #PETANQUEVERYWHERE!
There are numerous surprises in store for 2019 ...
We're willing to bet we'll be coming together for a game of petanque this year.
So see you soon.

OUR LONGSTANDING "ZERO DISCHARGE" TARGET MAKES SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS:
- -2 000 m3 of water used every year thanks to our closed circuit manufacturing and recycling lines.
- -70% of the chemicals used in two years thanks to our gamble on abandoning chrome-plated steel boules.
- -12 % of steel wasted each year thanks to our new process patented in 2018 for our "leisure" bowls, which are now made entirely of stainless steel.
- At the beginning of 2019, some important changes are planned to our product packaging to substantially reduce our plastic waste.
