Useful Web Links

We often get asked by members where they can buy boules or where can they find out about local competitions. These are just a few of the many useful Petanque websites out there:

dcpetanque  www.dcpetanque.co.uk Locally based Petanque equipment business. A wide range of competition boules available from Obut, MS Petanque and La Boule Bleue. There is something to suit every type of player and budget. All essential Petanque accessory needs including coches, bags, measure and pick-magnets are also covered.

Visits can be arranged for those who want a closer look and would like expert advise on choosing the right equipment.      www.dcpetanque.co.uk 

 

 

www.petanqueshop.com – This site have the widest variety and choice of boules. You will get very good value for money here. Although the company is based in France the delivery times are extremely quick. The main downside is that delivery to the UK can be quite expensive

www.pycpetanque.com – This is another well known seller of boules and is based in the UK. In the news section of this site is a long list of competitions up and down the UK. This is always the first place I check if I want to know what competitions are on.

www.winningpetanque.com – This a fantastic site where you can learn how to improve your game. My favourite parts are the sections on tactics, which I find very interesting to read. It’s definitely worth taking time to read through the contents of this site. It has helped me as a player and I often implement ideas I have learnt from this site into my game.

http://www.petanque.org/ – A comphrensive petanque website with a variety of features including coaching and strategy tips aplenty, game history, pictures, videos, forums, downloads and much much more. Definitely worth taking the time to have a little nose around this site.

http://www.englishpetanque.org.uk/ – The website of the English Petanque Association.

Mercia Petanque Association -The website of the  Petanque Association which we are affiliated to.

 

http://www.fipjp.com/en/ – Website of the international federation of Petanque and Provencal game.

http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/128791213885003/ – Ask the Umpire – very useful if you have a query about the game. I also enjoy reading other people’s queries and seeing the responses.
