LA JAVANAISE 2018 ; annual Jakarta Petanque Club competition, with a limited “unplugged” edition this year – 32 teams had a good competition day in Open Triple. Thank you to all participants and specially to IFI Widjaya student from Indonesian Police schools who took up the challenge by facing much more experienced players. See you next year !
The 48th Petanque world championship – Men – was held between 13 th and 16th september in Desbiens a small touristic village in Canada. Far from the modern world Petanque athlets from all arround the world did their best to race after the supreme world title. Saddly some countries from africa were not abble to get their visa and asian countries were not many to join. Nevertheless the competition went pretty well. Surprisingly Madagascar, the holder of Men Triple title were eliminated in 1/8 final facing a fierce German team by the score of 13/3. After a tought 1/8 final against Belgium (13/12) an easier game against Thailand in 1/4 (13/5), nothing could be done to stop the French “Dream Team” to bring back the trophee home.
LA JAVANAISE 2017 ; annual Jakarta Petanque Club competition, was a fun two days of competition with a fair attendance of arround 200 players this year. Open Triple + Double Youth.
