Due to popular demand we have decided to make a new section here at petanque.org. And it is to be about coaching. If you have any ideas, or know-how, please contribute.
We need training programs for shooters, pointers, beginners, experienced players, and help on just about all issues relating to the finer points of learing how to play petanque.
As usual we can not pay anyone anything, all we promise is that the contributors will be credited for their work, and that the entire petanque-world will be able to read the material for the forseeable future.
So get cracking, write and draw, and send it to us. The adress is at the bottom of all pages. All formats will be accepted, but we prefer word or plain text, and illustrations in jpeg, photoshop, eps or gif.
If you want to use regular mail you can send your contributions to:

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?
The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users.
