Petanque America Open brings the popular French game in Fernandina Beach

Petanque, one of Europe’s most popular outdoor games, is coming to the United States!
Though Petanque has become increasingly popular in the U.S, players are scattered throughout the country and have few opportunities to meet, mingle, and play together. In order to remedy this situation, the 5th truly open International Petanque Tournament in the USA will take place on beautiful Amelie Island, Florida in Fernandina Beach from November 9 to November 11, 2012.


Beginners, amateurs, advanced players and champions are all welcome to come, play and participate in this truly enjoyable event. The tournament will take place on Saturday, November 10th and Sunday, November 11th, with a training on Friday, November 9th. The fun will culminate with a total prize purse of $7,500 to be spread over at least 30 teams.

Don’t miss the opportunity to socialize with other petanque players and partake in this traditional game!
