I have often been asked by newcomers to the sport of Petanque why the ¨markeur de poche¨ registers the numbers from 0 to 15 when the game is played to finish at 13 points? Can anyone enlighten me on this?There may be of course other games that are played to 15 points of which I have no knowledge. Comments please.

More than 10 (or maybe 15) years ago it was usual that all final games were played to 15 points. With a modification of the international rules this was forbidden and only final games of world championships were allowed to play to 15 points. However, some years ago the FIPJP decided that also all final games of world championships had te be played to 13 points.
