Our Petanque Piste at the Ski & Snowboard Show 2011

After 227 games over five days, with more than 2,000 boules thrown each day, the winner of the Ski & Snowboard Show Pentanque competition is…. Jason Khan!

Jason beat Bruce, our ski instructor and Petanque expert, by 7-1 – not an easy feat we can promise you! Jason wins a ski holiday to France with Pierre & Vacances and SeaFrance.

A limited edition Petanque set for each of our runners up!

The equally excellent runners up were Mickael Weiss, Robbie ONeill, Joe Stamutol and Chris Ody, and they will each receive a limited edition Pierre & Vacances Petanque set.

A big thank you to every one who came along and played, we had a really tight competition! And a massive merci to the fantastique Bruce who played all of the 227 games and was very tired by the end of the show!

If you fancy playing a spot of Petanque yourself, you can play individually or versus your friends with our online Petanque3D game, where there is also a chance to win a holiday!

But if you think you can do as well as Jason, we’ll next be pitching our boules down the Petanque Piste at the France Show – 13 – 15th January.



Play Petanque against ‘Pascal’, Pierre & Vacances’ funky ski instructor with a penchant for 1970s ski ware, and you could win a week at a ski apartment for up to five people. The Petanque Piste will be at the 2011 Ski Show at London’s Earls Court, 19-23 October, with the tournament running throughout the event.

The winner can select accommodation from Pierre & Vacances’ 40 ski resort destinations in the French Alps and Pyrenees, with crossings provided by Seafrance. Two lucky runners up will receive a Pierre & Vacances petanque set for second and third positions on the leader board.

Shortened versions of the game will be played with the first person to get seven points declared the winner of each match. All match results will placed on a leader board and the player with the best score against ‘Pascal’ will win a holiday.  Visit the Pierre & Vacances Petanque Piste (stand number G25) to confirm your game time. Matches will run between 12 – 6pm daily during the show.

Images from each of the day’s petanque games will be posted on the Pierre & Vacances UK & Ireland Facebook Page.
