World Petanque Championships Graphics

Looking at the graphics on the Women's and Junior World Championships website, you'd think it is a promo site for a family beach petanque party - slinky tops and straw hats.
A shame that such unprofessional graphics have been signed off by whoever is in charge. This is after all a World Championship.

New PNZ Website

The new PNZ website is great. It is good to see its functional design and general consistent layout. It is equally great to see the strange collection of unrelated links at the bottom of the home page have been removed.

My compliments also go to Brian Smith who has put untold hours into building and maintaining the previous PNZ website.

Entry fee: $60 per player
Closing date: 24 September 2011

Download entry form here

Interesting to see the $60.00 entry-fee per player. If players want decent prize money they will of course have to pay hefty entry fees. All good.
A shame however about the patronising: "Note: A prize will be awarded to the best ladies team." It looks like there are still pockets of resistance in Australia.
