27 May 2017 – Pétanque, which attracts both young and old, is a game where metallic balls must be thrown as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet, and the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore was glad to organise again the French Chamber Pétanque Tournament!
Our 132 players enjoyed a day-long tournament of this typically French game in a fun atmosphere – in the sunny outdoors with a beautiful seaview of East Coast Park. We would like to thank all the 44 teams for their sporting attitude, team spirit and fair play! Everyone was very motivated, making this event a real success!
Players enjoyed a few glasses of Ricard and snacks all day long to gain forces for the tournament. The BBQ, along with some glasses of rosé wines sponsored by FDH, allowed our players a well-deserved lunch break. And of course, there was lots of Evian, Badoit and Sirops Teisseire to stay hydrated!
A big round of congratulations to the winners!
