I am a French reader of The Connexion. Thank you for a high-quality newspaper. One point to make on the article Make sense: of French boules games (Connexion, April 2018).

Editor’s note: Thank you for the feedback! We have double checked and triplette may refer both to your definition and to a set of three boules
