Categories in the tournament ?

It seems the original text on our site created some confusion and lead people to ask if there will be different levels (beginners, etc..). We have changed the text on the home page, and added another item in FAQ:

Will you have categories, e.g. beginners, advanced, age groups, men/ladies etc..?
No. One big competition. Except for age, it would be impossible or unfair to qualify anyone for any given level category. We also suspect that everyone would then probably sign up as "beginner"!!
One of the beauties of pétanque is that age and strength are irrelevant. Some countries do have separate men and women contests, but... we're in Miami!

That said, remember there will be a 'consolante', where those who got eliminated in the first rounds can continue playing.
