Ça roule à la pétanque!

Pétanque is all about social interaction and inclusion. Everyone can play, regardless of age or gender. That makes the sport a great fit for EuroGames! We are very happy to have found a great partner with Bern’s PC Boulissima who will be organising the pétanque tournament.

We are playing a doublettes tournament according to the Swiss System. When registering, you can indicate if you have a pétanque partner or if you wish to be paired up at the start of the tournament. As is custom, please bring your own set of boules. If you don’t have any, please indicate it in the registration system and we will be happy to provide you with boules to play.

Tournament schedule:

  • Thursday, July 27, 13:30 – 17:00: Optional practice and social play – come and go as you please
  • Friday, July 28, 9:30 – 17:00: Tournament

We will be playing two games before lunch and three games in the afternoon before finals. One game can take up to 60 minutes.

We are limiting the tournament to 22 teams, 44 persons respectively. Sign up before this tournament is full!
