Petanque in Harwich, MA

Squinting into the bright mid-afternoon sun, Harwich resident Francois Marin spoke warmly last Thursday about the sport he loves and why he wanted to share it with the community.

"Petanque is such a fantastic sport," said the 69-year-old native Frenchman, who opened the first Au Bon Pain restaurant. "It requires no particular skill and can be played by anyone, anywhere. It’s a great way to take advantage of nice weather like we have today, get to know people in the community and build friendships."

We also know of a petanque group in P'town and there are several people who have their own courts in Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
