On Monday 15th December for the first time a new CD with thirteen (13!) songs on the game of boules was presented in the Netherlands. In France there are several songs on petanque, but there is not a commercial CD that is completely dedicated to the game of petanque. And we offer one of the songs online here at petanque.org, for all of you to enjoy!

The new CD, “Vive la pétanque”, is the initiative of the petanque club “De Schaafboulers” in Leeuwarden, in the North of the Netherlands. The club is named after the Music Centre “Schaaf” in Leeuwarden. The club has his domicile in the garden of this Music Centre and the makers of the CD, who are professional musicians, are members of the petanque club. One of them, Frans van den Borg, is the joint-owner of the Music Centre, which has its own sound recording facilities.
All thirteen songs are original and sung in Dutch on existing national and international well-known melodies.
Song No. 13 is available in MP3 format right here at petanque.org:
Vive la petanque ( MP3 )
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.
