This page is to help fund the guys travel to the Pétanque World Champs in Dijon, France in December 2024


Earlier this year, an Auckland based team, Tiki Ruta, Niau Ruta and Charles Peni qualified to represent New Zealand at the 2024 Pétanque World Triples Championships after winning the National Triples Title in March. They have selected a fourth player, David Lippard.

This year the pétanque world champs are to be held in Dijon, France on 5th – 8th December 2024

This is the first time in 12 years that New Zealand will be represented.

This page has been set up to help the guys get to Dijon ahead of the competition where they can adapt to the weather conditions, time difference and terrain before competition day.

Tiki, Niau and Charles are members of the Panmure Pioneer Pétanque club and their club is holding a fundraising event at their home terrain on Tripoli Rd on Sunday 26th May. If you are unable to attend in person, please feel free to connect to the live stream on You Tube. All donations will be acknowledged during the fundraiser. Link will be updated shortly.

The guys are humbled to be representing themselves, their families, club, region and country and they would appreciate anything you can offer to support them by donating via this page. Thank you for supporting these exceptional players on their quest for World Championship glory.

Many Thanks

Tiki, Niau, Charles, David and their Families
