About JEU “de boules bar”

JEU is the first jeu de boulesbar in Utrecht. Why Utrecht? The “Dom-town” is lively and has a broad variety of hospitality and fun group activities. But it could still use some JEU! Because, where do you go if you want to go somewhere other than a bar, the movies, a poolhall, the bowling alley or an escape room? Exactly, you can go to JEU!

With JEU the old game of petanque gets its own place in the lovely city of Utrecht, only in a renewed, hip version. Jeu de boules is no longer a dusty, old men’s game and the new generation has rediscovered it. So, it was about time to get the game its own place with a healthy dose of balls, beers and bites.

FAQ

Jeu de boules

How does the game work?

Go to ‘game’ in the bar above. You can directly go to the game rules from there. In addition, we have a physical copy of the rules at every court.

Can I make a reservation for a court?

Yes, you can easily make a reservation in our online reservation tool.

I’D LIKE TO MAKE A RESERVATION, BUT THE TIMESPOT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. CAN I NEVERTHELESS MAKE A RESERVATION BY PHONE?

There are 2 possibilities why you would still be able to make a reservation:
1. Do you want to reserve a court for 1 hour and is it no longer available? That means that all the courts are fully booked for that time slot.
2. Do you want to reserve a court for 2 hours or more? Then it is possible that there are still courts available. Contact us by mail (info@jeudeboulesbar.nl) of by phone (030 20 80 538).

CAN I BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST WHEN ALL THE COURTS ARE FULLY BOOKED?

No, we don’t have a waiting list. We advise you to just walk in. It happens regularly that courts become available, so you may be in luck!

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PLAY ON A COURT?

We advise to play with 6 people. You can of course play with more than 6, but then it is possible that not everyone get’s the opportunity to play.

IF I MAKE A RESERVATION FOR MORE THAN ONE COURT, ARE THESE NEXT TO EACH OTHER?

Of course! Our online reservation system automatically selects courts laying next to or near each other.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE A RESERVATION AT HALF HOURS?

No, that’s unfortunately not possible. Every new reservation starts on the hour. The bouling takes 50 minutes, which leaves 10 minutes for every reservation to leave the court and make room for the next group.

No, you can hire a trainer for € 35,00 per hour. The playing rules are available at the court and are shown on a large screen.
