The 2nd AFNWCT Ligue de Pétanque ran this year from May through September 2017 with 19 members participating. Whereas last year the group played on 2 courts: one in Southbury and one in Bethlehem, two of our participants this year built two new courts which offered more opportunities to play throughout the season and different challenges, each court completely different in size, shape and terrain contours.

Congratulations to the 8 semi-finalists: Anne, Gail, Jean-Marie, Jim, Marcel, Marda and Noelle for having reached that level and for the concentration and passion demonstrated. Fabulous games. Fabulous! Best ever! Magnificent! Games no-one had seen before!

The finalists were, with ladies first and then men in order of age, Anne, Ulrich, Jim, and JM.

The final tournament was held in Bethlehem under a very hot sun, several spectators watching and with very warm interactions amongst the players.


1st place: Jim , Gold

3rd place: Jean-Marie, Bronze
4th place: Ulrich
