Every year, the City of Avignon organizes a Celebrity Tournament, along the Rhône river.
The 16th edition took place on July 10, 2004.
Lots of famous people from show and other business get together for a full day of pétanque, joined by some of the local champions.
Of course it always attracts plenty spectators who get the opportunity to see their favorite TV anchors and movie actors up close.
We did as well. Unfortunately we are not as familiar with the faces as the average bystander, (hence no captions) but it was a very pleasant experience. And some are real good players!
We were hoping to catch Charles Aznavour, who usually joins in, but he had to skip this years' event.

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.
