42nd World Championships

Close to 50 countries are expected on September 20 in Grenoble, a beautiful city at the foot of the Alps.

Novelty this year: the World Ladies tournament will be held concurrently.

The championship website is once again a labyrinth with tons of needless Flash presentations...

A quick glance at the US teams:

Hans, Richard, Khalid and Alec are all from La Boule NY.
Our Ladies team is an East & West Coast mix:
Josse Krauer is from La Boule d'Or (SF), Antonia Chavez & Erin McTaggart are from VOMPC in Sonoma, and Marieke Rolland from Boca Petanque 2000 in Florida.

Last June, the Sonoma Valley Sun dedicated a cover story to Antonia's petanque and chocolate making skills.

We wish them all good luck on the courts !
