Toronto and Kitchener Petanque Tournaments

Tony from Ontario just sent me some photos from his enormously successful tournaments he held in Toronto and Kitchener.

Keep in mind that Petanque is very popular in Asia - especially in Thailand, Japan, China, Laos and Vietnam - (The SEA Games [Southeast Asian Games] include petanque among the competitive sports)

Tony told me there were about 15 teams at each of the events - and he's just started!

Philippe Boets of Petanque America had recently sent multiple sets of boules to Tony (just in time!) I am glad that they have all been put to good use so soon.









...And I am thankful for Tony's organization of these events. Located in Detroit, Michigan - it is a relatively short drive to Kitchener and Toronto. We'll definitely need to run an International Tournament very soon.
