by Jürgen Beling:
I filmed, cut and burned two videos from the finals of the European PetanqueYouth championship in Luxembourg, September 2004. One (Cup of the nations, Luxembourg-Belgique) is abbreviated for half an hour and on SVCD.
The "real" final between France and Espagne nearly full length (73 minutes) in good quality (3 Chip DV-Recording, no as a DVD-R).Other videos (from German finals) are available.
The CDs may be obtained for a nominal charge (US $ 16+ handling each) from me: email@example.com
So for those of you that do not get enought petanque on your tv, send Jürgen a mail and get some new clips!
We might get a few outtakes of the videos online here if you would like to see before you shop!
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?
