Boules Bretonnes originates from Brittany and was played with balls with nail fittings and preferably on smooth threshing floors. Sometimes the ball rolled into the stray next to the alley. So the floor was enclosed with timber to avoid the search for balls and in time today’s shape of the boules alley resulted from this. In contrast to Pétanque, the balls are rolled not thrown.
When the Breton flag is set, Boules is played at the Untreusee according to the rules of “Boules brètonne”.
The Hofer boules alley is fit for playing all year round, the use is free. Boules balls have to be brought along.
