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. Last year, 320 players came from 25 states plus 9 countries and had a marvelous time. Lots of new friendships were made. High fives and laughter went on 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.
