On July 8, 3.400 triplets (that's over 10.000 players!) started off in numerous locations throughout Marseille to compete in the largest annual pétanque gathering, La Marseillaise.
The remaining teams for the semi-finals
this morning, July 12 were:
Quintais / Robert / Hureau vs Lacroix / Oddoux / Poncet
Gayraud / Adam / Buccinelli vs Molinas / Molinas / Molinas
Lacroix defeated Quintais 13 - 6

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.
