Petanque.org is a non-comercial online community owned and run by persons who all share a passion for Petanque. Our goal is to make petanque.org the largest, best and most useful website for petanque players and people who want to know more about this classic game.
Some ask where petanque.org is located. The truth is that we are not. Our server is in the USA, our administration in Oslo,Norway, The books,postcards, old rules etc are made in Amsterdam, the netherlands, and from the rest of Europe. So if you really want to pin us down with a geographical position, please use European. ALthough we have quite a few contributors from Australia, the Americas and Africa as well..

CEO & WebGuru
Everything that relates to making the webpages, the server scripts and the database, design etc... In short -what he does not know about php, sql, mySql , Linux, Bsd, HTML, CSS, XML, XSL etc is not worth knowing. Mr.Bordsenius is a former World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Member, figthing for open standars on the web. He has been on the internet since 1988 ( this is not a typo..)
If you would like to use our logo on your homepage we have made a smaller version for those sites registered in hotboule
If you are a contributor, such as a local editor or manage parts of petanque.org you may use this one.
We have done some redesigning here, and things are starting to look a bit more like 2013. The last change was back in 2005, and that was our 5th redesign. So here we are in the middle of our 6th change since 1996.
FInally there is a petanque-app for the android-users out there. And it is free. The perfect xmas-present perhaps?
We have set up a system that will publish 2 new postcards to twitter every day from petanque.org. It will not work forever of course, in only 2,5 years we will start with re-runs of cards we have already previously published on Twitter . We do have a lot of petanque-postcards here.
We have a very nice collection of postcards here on petanque.org, and all of them are about petanque of course. Currently we have more than 1750 postcards available for your enjoyment.
The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users.
