Petanque's popularity keeps rising in our country. But players are scattered over the 50 states and do not have many opportunities to meet, mingle and play. In 2015, players came from 23 states & 13 countries. Including 6 World Champions. Once again, this year, lots of new friendships will be made. Expect high fives and laughter from morning till night. Just watch the short 2015 video
It certainly helps that the Fernandina Harbor marina is a beautiful setting, with plenty restaurants & bars in walking distance, and lots of breeze and sunshine. Not unlike La Ciotat on the French Mediterranean coast, where
petanque started in 1907.
