At Parkhurst Petanque in Johannesburg, we developed a new game called Petanque Pinball.

We started a mega game with 4 players in each team, each with 3 boules. When we started playing there were some stumps on the piste and we decided that if the boules touched a stump, then they would be out (the coch was allowed to touch it). This made for an exciting game where about a quarter of the boules are removed during the game. It also minimises the role of the shooter and so is great where there are beginners playing who don't see all their boules being shot out all the time.

Unfortunately we had a "bug" in the clubs database that made new entries impossible. This has been fixed now, so if you have tried to register your club previously but it did not work, this is the time to try again.
