Last updated 10/31/2019 at 10:24am
September in the French Riviera is the perfect time to visit and play Petanque, as 14 members of the Edmonds Petanque Club found out in the pleasant sunshine on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Daniel Olivieri, President de l 'Entente des Sociétés Nicoises de Petanque et Jeu Provencal, was the host for the week. He welcomed the Americans and provided the opportunity for both American and French to play the game of petanque.
From a young age, French kids learn to play petanque. Different venues provided enjoyable games and helped to create warm friendships with local players.
