Petanque in Coral Springs, FL

Here's a great example of a location that screams for petanque. An old bocce court, smack in the middle of a populated neighborhood.

José, a regular player at Boca 2000, discovered it by accident when invited to a picnic in the park. Since he lives close by, he'd love to meet other players and/or teach beginners in the area.
Contact him at: nmbjoe (at) yahoo.com

The court looks a bit run down for bocce, but isn't that exactly how we like it? And look at those shade trees!
Thanks, José, for the tip. I have also marked it on the Petanque in the USA map. It cannot be stressed enough that players without a meeting place are - as they say in Belgium - like a bar without beer.

I'd love to put more and more spots like these on the map, even if today there is nobody playing. Shoot!
