Philippe Quintais , by many hailed as the best petanque-player in the world , is now online with his very own homepage. The site is maintained by Lionel Zanet, the man behind boulistenaute.com
Here is a shot bio on Quintais, for those of you that do not know everything about him already:
8 times world champion triples: 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2002,2003.
4 times world champion precison shooting.
2 times French champion indiviuals (tête-à-tête): 1988, 2001.
French champion doubles: 1999.
2 times French champion mixed: 1993, 1994.
Winner of many French Nationals.
At this moment Philippe Quintais (Philippe I) is the best petanque player in the world. But he never won a French championship for triples. That's why he "moved", with Philippe Suchaud, to Nice (the club DUC). But he has to wait one year, because in France it's not allowed to participate in a French championship with two transferred player together. So, next year he will participate with the Philippe II and maybe conquer at last the French title for triples.
In the meantime, Quintais is still the president of his "former" club
Hanches, near Chartres.
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.
