Thanks to contributions after our request for petanque-postcards we now have quite a collection of them online.
The response we got wes overwhelming - in terms of number of images we could get our hands on. Ray Ager contributed with two cards, and Jac Verheul came cruising in with more than 400!
This was a bit more than expected, and as Jac is extremely quick we already have about 50 cards online.
The current pop-up-window is just a temporary solution, we'll fix it and make a better solution later on. Yet another database has to be built..
To have a look at the cards, go th the pictures section.
And (as usual) we would like to thank Jac Verheul for his contribution!
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?
