Alliance Française

Petanque June

Written by Céline Thiria no comments

On behalf of Carolina Petanque, I'd like to thank all of those who participated in the Petanque and Picnic event with Charlotte's Alliance Française.

The weather was perfect, attendance was high, and we had a great time! We appreciate Alliance Française's interest co-hosting this event and furnishing the delicious desserts from Renaissance Bakery.

Pétanque is a staple of the French culture, and therefore it is also popular in other Francophone countries and provinces such as Belgium, Morocco, and Quebec.  Because of this, we are happy to have started this new tradition with the Alliance Française of Charlotte.  In addition, we in Carolina Petanque love this game, so we relish opportunities to share pétanque with others in the United States
 
We look forward to hosting this event again in 2017.  Don't forget that pétanque is played in Charlotte the third Saturday of each month at Nevin Park, beginning at 13h. Let's continue to help pétanque grow in the Carolinas!
