Madagascar beat Belgium in the final.
It was somehow natural that at the end the team from Madagascar won the World Championship at Reunion. Madagascar has for many years played a brilliant game of petanque, and when the championship were organized very close to their own island it was at last their turn to win.
Another team who has been playing great petanque is Belgium. They should have been in the final last year, but when they reached the final match this year they could not beat the heat.
For the first time since 1989 there were no French team in the final, but France 1 claimed the last medals by beating Thailand in the broncefinal.
Thailand - Tunisia 13-9
Belgium - Canada 13-4
France 1 - Morocco 13-6
Madagascar - Italy 13-3
Belgium - Thailand 13-8
Madagascar - France 1 13-8
France 1 - Thailand 13-3
Madagascar - Belgium 15-10.
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.
