About the Poster: Boules is no stranger to Swedes. It all started back in the 1980s, when HRH Prince Bertil brought his love of the sport from the French Riviera to Djurgården. Here, he played with friends in a greenhouse in Rosendals Trädgård. A longtime devotee, his enthusiasm and converts led to Stockholm’s first boules hall being established, and on February 22, 1989, Prince Bertil’s boules hall was erected, where it stands to this day.
Since the 1990s, the popularity of the game has only been on the rise, especially with the opening of boules halls like Boule & Berså and Boulebar that double as trendy restaurants. Things really took off with the introduction of La Majonnaise, a boules tournament & festival with live music. “Mayo,” as its otherwise known is a nod at the world’s largest boules festival, La Marseillaise in France.
