One could argue that locale=c would lead us toward using 'bowls' but on 
the other hand even the English-language Wikipedia article for bocce 
mentions that it "is a ball sport belonging to the boules sport family" 
thus hinting that 'boules' is the correct term for the main sport=* tag. 
The international spread of sport=boules validates that:

So I would lean toward:
leisure=pitch
sport=boules
boules=petanque|whatever
