A little history, Pétanque is a ball sport born in La Ciotat, near Toulon, in 1907, whose name comes from the expression "Pieds-Tanqués", which means feet attached to the ground.
In the heart of Toulon, in the historic centre and a few steps from the Mediterranean Sea, O'Boulodrome has developed a unique concept of "Cave, Apéro, Pétanque".
