After more than 2 months of suspension marco Foyot, arguably one of the best petanque-players ever , has been given back his licensce from the F.F.P.J.P. It was taken from him after he said that the said that F.F.P.J.P. was not a very democratic or fair organisation, and apparently they have improved.
So now al lMarco has to do is play petanque, and not say much - and he'll be able to play for a long time...
The management of F.F.P.J.P. , lead by Claude Azema accepted Marco?s apology, and this last Sunday he played in the mixed championships of Hérault, his first match in what seems like a very long time. Next week Marco will be in Perpignan for the qualifiers of the championship of the French triplette (League Languedoc Roussillon).
Hopefully the the F.F.P.J.P. has learned and wil lstop behaving as if they live in Soviet Russia anno the 1930?s.
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?
