After a long period of absence the boule manufacturer La Boule bleue is back. This time with the same web, but a new domain..
The old domain now offers services of a different kind - more related to balls than boules!
The old web has apperared again for La boule bleue, with a few minor modifications. And this is not a negative thing - they do have a very good web indeed. Well worth a visit.
The curious thing is that www.laboulebleue.com nowadays hosts a service for a "mature" audience, not at all what we would expect. So head over to Laboulebleue.fr for a petanque-related surf.
Rumor has it that these events were triggered by some internal affairs at LBB, but let us not worry about it now. They are back - and we are very pleased about that. The world needs more good petanque-related sites!
Our review of the original site
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?
The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users.
