Didn't you always wish that you had your very own petanque coach? Well, now you do! He'll give you ideas for how to improve your pointing, shooting, and strategizing. And even give you the occasional kick in the butt when you have been slacking off.

To the right are some handy links to explore. Try a few of the suggestions and see your playing improve!

And I've even included a list of some of my favorite players for you to be inspired by, as I am! Sometimes just knowing that a shot can be made keeps us practicing. Watching more skilled players play is always a good thing.
