You shoot or you point?
Pétanque, from Provençal pèd: feet and tanca: planted; is the 11th sport in France by the number of license holders. Reflecting this growing enthusiasm for this game of bowls, the National competition is in Alpe d’Huez for 5 days. The young people will kick off on Wednesday and Thursday. 3 categories: minors, cadets and juniors aged 10 to 17 years old, are represented, divided into 64 triplets or nearly 600 players in total. Then it will be the adults turn to compete from Friday to Sunday: veterans (over 60 years old) with 64 doubles, gentleman, National (256 triplets), female competition (64 doublets) and men. So there will be something for all tastes and desires! Without forgetting the participation of some French elites.
