Entry level price high level product

Bought a set of these 2 weeks ago. really happy with them - used them allot in that time on a variety of surfaces. great finish - wears well, roll well, good choice of size and weight. I've only marked them down as they do not come with a bag.

Excellent product which I have used approximately 5 times now. No scratches like cheaper products. Arrived 2 days after I ordered them. Excellent service and highly recommended.

Alpha Petanque

The boules are very good to use as both pointer and shooter. The smooth finish is now gaining some battle scars as all boules do. They are well weighted and comfortable in the hand. The coche being yellow polyurethane plastic doesn't suffer from the problems others with only a surface colour do, that is chipping and wear making some difficult to see after a lot of use. I expect this set will last a lifetime ands far I've enjoyed using them.

Geologic Alpha Boules

I've been using this 2-3 times a week the past four months and found them to be excellent. Previously was using Obut as well as KTK and JB. I play on a gravel surface and the boules are holding up very well (even though I am practising shooting a lot. Just scuff marks and the hardness and shine are holding up well.) I cannot wait to try the Delta range when the Decathlon stores here decide to carry them!)

HARD petanque boule


3 petanque boules and 1 jack.

How to choose the right petanque boule

Choose your petanque boule based on: 1. Desired bounce quality (hard, semi-soft, soft, or very soft boule) 2. Size of your hand (diameter). 3. Your playing style, which determines the weight of your boule (heavier for pointers and lighter for shooters). 4. The boule's feel in your hand (if you can't decide between 2 sizes).

What does hardness mean for a petanque boule?

The boule's hardness is expressed in the ROCKWELL "HRC" unit or in kg/mm². For example, 45 HRC corresponds to 146 kg (321.9 lbs)/mm². The higher the number, the harder the boule. The harder the boule, the less likely it is to get damaged, and the higher its elasticity, and vice versa.

How are competition-approved geologic boules made

Our petanque competition boules are hollow. Here is how they are made: - A lump of steel heated to 1000°C (1832°F) is flattened and then stamped or forged into a hemisphere. - These hemispheres are welded together and rotated until they are spherical. - The boule is then engraved, baked, and dipped into water to obtain the desired hardness. - Finally, they are polished or varnished and then inspected.

How to clean your petanque boules?

After each match, wipe off dust with a clean cloth. Once a month, oil your petanque boules to prevent them from rusting. Cleaning regularly lengthens the lifespan of your petanque boules while also ensuring the quality of your match.



Product testing

The petanque boules are both tested in our labs and durably on practice pistes by our community of enthusiasts.
