Thought you might like to see my Petanque project (French Boules...... just in case it isn't obvious!!) It is built to the minimum size of 12m x 3m and filled with hardcore and crushed limestone which makes for a hard and durable playing surface. http://www.britishpetanque.org/Information.html
I've reduced the pictures quality to email them, so hope they are OK but can send one or two higher definition if you are interested.

RAILWAY SLEEPERS USED
New oak railway sleepers
Great to see French boules crossing the channel and establishing sites in the UK. These new French oak railway sleepers make a tough & attractive edging for this addictive sport!
Incidentally, I was contacted from a Danish guy called Mads Phikamphon who had recently made a drawing of a petanque court and said we were welcome to use it: (I've included it amongst your photos - no.8)
