The above response is sage advice indeed and wiser words are rarely spoken. Whenever MY sense of humour starts to wane I just close my eyes and think of all those hidden CCTV cameras in the hedges back home.

Good luck.  Children are golden in France and despite the fact that you may see one of the doting mothers swat one of them across the head for a violation of her rules when it comes to your needs you are likely out of luck.  I have had similar experiences and have made suggestions which led to neighbours being angry with me for having an opinion, I had one person threaten me and all I did was suggest 2 daily adult pool hours at an AGM of the domaine.  Don't waste your money on legal action.  Consider fencing, netting a few metres from the house like golf course have.  If all else fails and it will take a deep breath and keep looking for alternatives, maybe just get a table and chairs and go sit there during a game.  Take a bottle of rose and lunch out to the space and sitt there.  They would not dare interfer with your lunch.
