New Petanque America logo

Petanque America Open 2005 will also be the opportunity to launch our new logo.
From the somewhat vague


to









Of course we are sticking to red, white and blue for America - and a hint to the sports' French heritage.
With the silhouette of a crouched player pitching a boule, to clearly indicate 'pétanque' is a ball game, not a line of fancy cooking utensils, a new liqueur or an exotic fruit (we've heard all three).
The professional look expresses our hope that pétanque will eventually join the ranks of other sports that are only a few years older, like basketball (1891) or tennis (1874). Pétanque was 'born' in 1910 - more about that later.
We hope you like it. The new T-shirts and caps will be available on the beach.

WOW! Extremely well thought out logo. I LOVE IT!

Who designed that -- it's a winner!

Did Mario "model" for it?
