Pétanque - The greatest game you never heard of!

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2011-12-14

Byron Putman discovered petanque some two years ago and fell in love, head over heels. Then decided to analyze every angle of the game, including its development in the USA. He started clubs in Palm Springs, CA and in Lake Oswego, OR. And wrote a book about it, aptly named "Pétanque - The greatest game you never heard of!"

More info on the book is in our book database.

The book is available from amazon here!

The homepage for the book/club is also avaiable , it is at petanqueblog.com
