The Chiltern Region of the British Petanque Association is an up and coming region and is growing in strength all the time. One aim for the region is to encourage new and existing junior players, coach, support and help them reach their goals.

Recently some of our juniors were invited to play a three-way competition against juniors from two other BPA regions. This was held at Harrow Petanque Club on the outskirts of London.
The weather was variable as it often is in England with out bursts of sun and rain.
Jeremy and Sarah Huntley from the Chiltern region came runners up in the finals of the doubles competition with the other two juniors from our region, Ben Gallimore and Tom Hutchins being knocked out in the semi finals.
The shooting competition was a very close thing Ben knocked Tom out of the competition in the Semi final. the final Ben had to shoot two coches one of which had to go over the boundary and go dead. The first coche was hit; the second coche was hit and stopped about 10cm short of the boundary.
The juniors represented the region very well and made us all proud.
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.
