Buy Boules

When you order your boules, think about adding a couple of Obut jacks to your order. Your set of boules will include a jack, but the Obut jacks are noticeably better, and there is no extra shipping charge if you add a few to your order. Pick the color that you think will be most visible; we recommend orange or yellow.

It is possible to buy competition grade boules on eBay as long as one knows what questions to ask the seller. It is a requirement of FIPJP that competition boules have engraved on them: the trademark of the manufacturer, the model of the boules, the weight (in grams), and a unique serial number (same number on each boule set). Some brands also have the diameter engraved on them.

By 1984, the standard configurations of boules for singles (3 boules per player), doubles (3 boules), and triples (2 boules) had become part of the rules. Manufacturers continued to sell boules in sets of both two and three, but as doubles became more popular, the market for 2-boule sets gradually declined. Finally, around 2012 Obut stopped selling competition boules in sets of two.

Is it possible to buy hollow plastic boules that can be filled with water or sand to increase their weight? I find that my traditional metal boules are too heavy to take on a plane to remote countries.

Yes, all of the boules can be from different sets as long as they each individually are acceptable. Again, I will refer you to the FAQs page on The Rules of Petanque site: _with_mismatched_boules

I can imagine a player combining boules from two different sets and then putting (say) red paint in the stripes of all of the boules in order to show that they all belong to him. If any of your players are thinking of doing that, you should first consult with your national federation on its policy for coloring boules. National federations differ on this. In the USA it would be OK, but in the Netherlands it would not. See _you_color_boules

Aan boules mag volgens artikel 2 niets worden veranderd. Trucage kan méér kan inhouden dan alleen maar thermische of mechanische bewerkingen van het ijzer: ook verven of beïnkten vallen hieronder als daardoor de eigenschappen van een boule veranderen. Zo kan een boule er stroever door worden.

In toenemende mate ontstaat uit het oogpunt van publieksvriendelijkheid belangstelling voor het spelen met gekleurde boules. Als in de nabije toekomst gekleurde boules af fabriek worden geleverd die door de FIPJP worden goedgekeurd, zijn die vanzelfsprekend ook hier toegestaan.

Ook bestaat er voor onderlinge wedstrijden en voor kleinere toernooien (regionaal) geen overwegend be-zwaar tegen het aanbrengen van een bescheiden markering op boules (bijvoorbeeld met een markeringsstift enkele puntjes of een streepje zetten, of een deel van de striage inkleuren), mits de eigenschappen van de boule er niet door veranderen. De scheidsrechter beoordeelt of deze markering kan worden toegestaan.

According to article 2, nothing about boules may be changed. Tampering with a boule may involve more than just heating or mechanical operations on the iron. It may also involve painting and inking. Applying a coat of paint or ink can affect the properties of a boule. For example, a boule may be rougher [to provide a better grip?].

[2010 version] Occasionally, especially during big tournaments, the competition organizer may require boules to be colored in order to improve their visibility to the viewing public. In such cases, in order to avoid the kind of abuse of paint described above, the coloring of the boules will be done by the competition organizer. This is technically incorrect, but it is tolerated for the sake of promoting the sport.

[2016 version] There is an increasing interest in playing with colored boules in order to make it easier for spectators (the viewing public) to follow the game. If in the future manufacturers produce colored boules (boules colored at the factory), and those boules are approved by the FIPJP, they are obviously permitted here too.

For friendly(mutual?) games and smaller (regional) tournaments, a modest amount of marking may be applied to boules (for example, using a marker to add colored dots or dashes to the striage lines), provided that doing so does not change the playing properties of the boule.

That does not seem to me to allow for colored boules in an international tournament. Note that the paragraph that said that competition organizers could provide colored boules was in the commentary on the 2010 rules. It was removed and replaced in the commentary on the 2016 rules.
