It seems difficult to locate boules courts in Kuala Lumpur, using various sources such as pictures (and shadows), sat images, maps … For example, I contacted Petanque Uputra, to map their courts, but they seems resilient to release geographic information… This feels useless, because satellite data will eventually reveal their location… I finally nailed it.
While trying to locate Petanque KL (I think I found it), I discovered the difficulty of working with outdated sat data. THis is the location I thin I found : https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=3.12394&mlon=101.73567#map=18/3.12394/101.73567 The sat image providers in OSM show this area as covered in woods, while Google Maps shows the most recent data…

It seems that many schools in Malaysia have petanque facilities.
