We have updated the rules, they are here
We have received a question from South africa regarding the rules of boles that break during play. A new one for us, so we need your help.Full story
A new question in our rules-section:
May one jack be painted in several colours?Full story
Four teams are playing triplette. Two by two. One party shoots le cochonette out of the playing field and into the other playing field, where it directly hits another cochonette. Now there are two cochonettes on the other playing
ground and nobody can tell which cochonette is the right one since nothing was marked. It really happened! I just cant remember what what ruling was made, but what is your suggestion?Full story
During a game of Team A vs Team B.
Late in the end Team A indicates Team B is "holding the point" this is confirmed.B waits for A to,play but they indicate they have no boules left.
So B plays out.
THEN when measuring is about to occur Team A finds they have a Boule unplayed, and, one of their team suggests that team B played out of turn and consequently have offended the rules.Full story
Do I have to play with identical boule?Full story
Do we have to mark the position of the cochonnet or boule?
Can the umpire measure to decide who is holding third place?
I have read somewhere, that the distance from the circle to the cochonnet in a competition for juniors should be between 6 and 9 metres, is
this right?Full story
We are under the impression that you can draw the circle a metre from the position of the cochonnet after the first end. Is this right?
For some time there has been a misunderstanding or perhaps I should I say a misinterpretation of the second paragraph in article 16. Full story
Q. Team ëAí throw the cochonnet to about 9.5 metres. They then throw their first boule that knocks the cochonnet on to about 11 metres from the circle. Team ëBí claim that the cochonnet is over 10 metres and therefore invalid. Are they correct? Full storyblog comments powered by Disqus
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?
