Crutches Don't Stop a Dedicated Petanquer

Jason G. is dedicated to his sport. So when he took a nasty fall a week ago, it didn't keep him from playing boule. And he'll be in his cast for at least another month, but at least he'll still remain active.

In fact, our sport was conceived for people with mobility issues. Back in World War 1, veterans with missing or prosthetic limbs participated in Petanque games either standing in the circle, or on their wheelchairs, with the wheel placed within the circle.
