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..

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?
Remember the petanqueamerica open this coming week! An assortment of petanque- celebrities and a lot of teams from all over the world are coming. So why don't you join the party too?
Unfortunately we had a "bug" in the clubs database that made new entries impossible. This has been fixed now, so if you have tried to register your club previously but it did not work, this is the time to try again.
Thailand defeated France 13-7 at the women’s Petanque World Championship on Monday in Mendi, France. This is their sixth world title.
