We have updated the rules, they are here
We have received a question from South africa regarding the rules of boles that break during play. A new one for us, so we need your help.Full story
A new question in our rules-section:
May one jack be painted in several colours?Full story
Four teams are playing triplette. Two by two. One party shoots le cochonette out of the playing field and into the other playing field, where it directly hits another cochonette. Now there are two cochonettes on the other playing
ground and nobody can tell which cochonette is the right one since nothing was marked. It really happened! I just cant remember what what ruling was made, but what is your suggestion?Full story
During a game of Team A vs Team B.
Late in the end Team A indicates Team B is "holding the point" this is confirmed.B waits for A to,play but they indicate they have no boules left.
So B plays out.
THEN when measuring is about to occur Team A finds they have a Boule unplayed, and, one of their team suggests that team B played out of turn and consequently have offended the rules.Full story
Do I have to play with identical boule?Full story
Do we have to mark the position of the cochonnet or boule?
Can the umpire measure to decide who is holding third place?
I have read somewhere, that the distance from the circle to the cochonnet in a competition for juniors should be between 6 and 9 metres, is
this right?Full story
We are under the impression that you can draw the circle a metre from the position of the cochonnet after the first end. Is this right?
For some time there has been a misunderstanding or perhaps I should I say a misinterpretation of the second paragraph in article 16. Full story
Q. Team ëAí throw the cochonnet to about 9.5 metres. They then throw their first boule that knocks the cochonnet on to about 11 metres from the circle. Team ëBí claim that the cochonnet is over 10 metres and therefore invalid. Are they correct? Full storyblog comments powered by Disqus
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.
