Petanque.org is a non-comercial online community owned and run by persons who all share a passion for Petanque. Our goal is to make petanque.org the largest, best and most useful website for petanque players and people who want to know more about this classic game.
Some ask where petanque.org is located. The truth is that we are not. Our server is in the USA, our administration in Oslo,Norway, The books,postcards, old rules etc are made in Amsterdam, the netherlands, and from the rest of Europe. So if you really want to pin us down with a geographical position, please use European. ALthough we have quite a few contributors from Australia, the Americas and Africa as well..

Finally petanque has found a new home, as a bar game! Althought it might take a few years befor the darts-boards get the boot and petanque moves in everywhere it has started to happen
The Financial times has finally understood that Petanque is the game of the future, with our long time friend Mike Pegg, International umpire. "It may not be the sunny south of France but even on a chilly Devon day, British fans are warming to the charms of pétanque"
This is a product we have mentioned earlier, just because it is sooooo French. A Tour de France petanque-set! This is more French than a baguette!
We stumbled across a petanque-game for the andoid-system. From the produces description:"Petanque in St Tropez is a 3D bowls game, as played on the mediterannean coast." We do not have an android-phone to test it on, perhaps one of you can help us out?
