For quite some time we have worked on a french version of the books database, as a first step on the way to make a bilingual version of petanque.org.
Our aim is to have a bilingual version , with both English and French - but we have not set a deadline for this. But as a start we have translated most of the content from the book database. It may now be used either in English or in French.
Currently the menues are in english, but hopefully we will get enough help to be able to translate most of the site.
The section that are next in line are :
4 .. to be decided.
If you would like to help us, please tell us! We have had some problems with the e-mail lately, but if you use the feedback-forum we will see it!
The book database in french
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?
