Help Get us to the Pétanque World Champs

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 Pene 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

It is with great pleasure that we congratulate the following Panmure Pioneers Petanque Club members. Niau Ruta, Tiki Ruta and Charles Peni who became the New Zealand National Triples Champions for 2024. After a gruelling two days, this team defeated a strong opponent in Jarod, Stephane and Michael 13-11. Niau, Tiki and Charles have earned the right to represent the country at the next World Championships in France. A special mention to Lani Tovo, Na'a Tovo and their partner Adeleys Taraunu (former Pioneer member) who paired up for the first time and went all the way to the semi finals. Lastly to Seti Mailei who also made the quarter finals. A massive weekend for the members who we are all extremely proud of. Check out the game on You tube
