Boule holders

One thing I noticed when visiting RV parks in Florida last week is the variety (and creativity) of boules holders at the ends of the courts. Just like a bowling alley. One was made of split 4" PVC pipe, the other in good old crafted wood.
Also, I observed how players pick up all the boules, irrespective whose they are, and put them on the holders for the next round. A very courteous custom.
Pick-up magnets I saw few. As one lady commented: "I love to play petanque, because I am forced to bend down many, many times during an afternoon. Good for my back!".
