I drew a design on the computer and printed it to an Iron-Transfer sheet and put it on a nice quality t-shirt. Then I stitched two pieces of velcro (the soft pieces) to either side of the scoreboard, and put the "hook" side of sticky velcro on the backs of two metal buttons (they look like boules).
They start at zero and I move them up the velcro strips as the score changes. I only needed 0 through 12 because 13 is the end of the game. Now, whenever someone needs to know the score they simply look in my direction.
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?
