We have launched a new service, a player database. It might sound a bit silly to have one on the web, but we have a very good reason:

A few weeks back a fellow player found yours truly, and called because ther was a team from the norwegian club Petanqueamigos that missed a player due to illness.
And it stuck me: How would I be able to locat players that are not presented on petanque.org or another website?
So that is why, and you are more than welcome to register yourself in the player database. We will intergrate it with the club-database soon, and of course all players that register themselves may log in and edit their personal information at any time. If you have ideas for additional functionality for the player section please contact us, we are always open to suggestions.
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.
