If you’re a devotee of the ancient game of petanque, you can find courts and players at the CV Starr Community Center. The ancient Greeks started throwing stone balls around in the 6th century BC, and the Romans later added the target. The Romans introduced it to Europe, and the game has continued to the present day.
The Noyo Yoyos, seen in the second picture below, play petanque at C.V. Starr every Thursday afternoon, beginning at 2 pm. You can hook up with the Yoyos through their Facebook page.
