Pétanque Tournament

Aug 6, 2022
- Sport

The village of La Forclaz gets a southern feel for the annual pétanque tournament.

This ancestral game of bowls brings together young and old during a day full of little tweaks. The song of the cricket replaces that of the cicada and white wine replaces the traditional pastis. Finally, the Cochonnet menu will give both players and spectators all the energy they need for the great debates of the day.
