Message from Sam…

Last year I translated two books for author Pierre Fieux   Petanque de Competition and Comment se forger un mental du Championinto English.     The books are on sale on and and can be found through the following links as Competition Petanque and Forge your Mental  Strength.

 The first may conjure up thoughts of grandmothers and egg sucking but the second examines the mental aspects of the game and applies preparation techniques used in other sports, to pétanque.  Petanque England coaches now seem to be pretty well on the same page in their approach. I think it is worth the 15Euro to serious competitors.

By coincidence I had started to put together some bits and pieces which I had put on the club website over the years with other aspects I had been studying and decided to publish it all as Two balls and Half a Brain. (available at a bargain £4 paperback or £2 on Kindle) from the links below. It’s worth it if only for the opportunity to slag it off in the review section.  The bile green cover with graphics by Charles is due to trying to buy blue card while wearing yellow tinted glasses
