The objective in petanque is to score points by having boules closer to the target than your opponent after all boules have been thrown.  This is achieved by projecting boules closer to the small target ball, called a cochonnet, or by hitting the opponents’ boules away from the target whilst standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.
