On Monday 15th December for the first time a new CD with thirteen (13!) songs on the game of boules was presented in the Netherlands. In France there are several songs on petanque, but there is not a commercial CD that is completely dedicated to the game of petanque. And we offer one of the songs online here at petanque.org, for all of you to enjoy!

The new CD, “Vive la pétanque”, is the initiative of the petanque club “De Schaafboulers” in Leeuwarden, in the North of the Netherlands. The club is named after the Music Centre “Schaaf” in Leeuwarden. The club has his domicile in the garden of this Music Centre and the makers of the CD, who are professional musicians, are members of the petanque club. One of them, Frans van den Borg, is the joint-owner of the Music Centre, which has its own sound recording facilities.
All thirteen songs are original and sung in Dutch on existing national and international well-known melodies.
Song No. 13 is available in MP3 format right here at petanque.org:

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?
