Second indoor title in succession for Toon van Alebeek, Patrick Tuaux and Marty van Nunen!
Toon van Alebeek, Patrick Tuaux and Marty van Nunen are the winners of 17th Dutch Indoor Championship for triples that was held in Apeldoorn at Sunday 4 February 2001. In the final play they beat B. Duits, W. Duits en S. Duits (all of one family!) with 13-6. Van Alebeek, Tuaux and Van Nunen also were the winners in 1996, 1997 and 2000. In 1999 Van Alebeek and Tuaux were the champions too, that time with Rajen Koebeer instead of Van Nunen.
Remarkable was the third place for the women?s team, that participated at the World Championship for women in Hyères (France) 2000: Brigitte Schouten, Gofie Beekmans and Joke van Nunen (indeed, the mother of Marty van Nunen!!).
For some reason the worl championship in petanque is held in the buzzling metroloplis of Tahiti this year! So pack your swimwear and go there at once!
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?
