Sara, Lotta and Linda form one of the best teams in Northern Europe. And not only in ladies class, as they will also beat most of the local men any time.

1. FIN 1 / Iivo Paaso, Arttu Poikolainen, Tuukka Ylönen
No one questions the fact, that Arttu is the best Finnish player at the moment. Iivo and Tuukka are not so bad either and these three guys will play also in the World Championships in Portugal later this year.

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?
