Petanque Ann Arbor is a club that advances the game of petanque (or boules). Club organizers Howard Ando and Jane Wilkinson sponsored the construction of a court in Burns Park, near the Ann Arbor Senior Center.

“Oooh, shiny!” exclaimed Howard Ando and Jane Wilkinson when we unveiled our set of six petanque boules, scarcely used over a decade since they were purchased. The couple’s own set of metal boules were dull with the wear of frequent play on the gravel surface typical for petanque. Over the last two years, much of that play has come on the rectangle of gravel in the side yard of the couple’s Ypsilanti home, just west of the Eastern Michigan University campus.
