Petanque players doing it for themselves

It is great to see how NZ petanque players have taken to the Web. Two additions are Twitter and more recently a new space for petanque players was created by Ruby Vakauta at Facebook PATONKAZ. PATONKAZ seems to have a good future with already over 40 members and a good number are active participants. Petanque players doing it for themselves has to be a good thing. I encourage everyone to take part in this by joining up.

The greatest little Petanque Club in the world

"MASTERTON PETANQUE CLUB: Masterton Petanque Club have been in existence since the early 1990s and have provided many of the country's top players. Four national titles have been won and no fewer than eight members have represented New Zealand. Masterton has the highest representation of any club - five - in the Kiwi line-up to take on Australia in a transtasman battle this month."
