The 10th Open, International Petanque Tournament will take place at the downtown marina in Fernandina Beach on November 12 – 13, 2016. It is open to anyone, teams of two players where beginners, amateurs, advanced players and champions all play together in one big tournament. The total prize purse is $10,000 spread over at least 32 teams. 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. 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.
