La Boule Bleue
Find us on the Route of EPV:
Its trade name arose from the company’s creation in 1947 of a competition ball in carbon tempered steel with shades of blue.
Competition balls for pétanque and jeu provençal in stainless or carbon tempered steel represent almost the entirety of activities by the company whose speciality is the made-to-measure manufacture and personalisation of balls which are guaranteed for five years. Related products (bags, clothing and accessories) and non-approved amateur balls (not manufactured by the company) complete the range.
The balls meet precise specifications set by the governing body Fédération Internationale de Pétanque et de Jeu Provençal, and each new model requires approval by the national laboratory for testing. The balls must comply with particular dimensions (weight, diameter), hardness, balance, aspect (engraving, markings) and material (carbon-tempered or stainless steel). The specialty of this company is its ability to make custom and customized balls.
La Boule Bleue competition balls have been chosen by the greatest pétanque champions and by many amateurs. They are a point of reference in the world of pétanque.
