The 20th International North Sea Petanque tournament (INSPT) is organized by the Norwegian Petanque Association 24th-26th of June. Information for supporters of the participating countries Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium VLPS, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
This year the Norwegian Petanque Association is for the first time in organizing the INSPT.
This will be (I think) the first tournament in history with continious updating of results on the web.
The the results will be published on the petanque.org (updatet coniniously) and the home.sol.no/~petanque/insptres.htm (updatetd daily).
The hardworking people at petanque.org have volounteerd to help the NPA on this which we highly appriciate. In return, they will have every opportunity to promote their site during the tournament.
So, we are looking forward to give all supporters the information service we thing they would like to have. Then, the visitor-counter will tell us if we found a market or not.
Looking forward to see your reaction on this service as we are getting along.
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.
