National Singles Champion

On May 17, Louis Toulon won the National Men' Singles championship in Sacramento, CA. Full results and a report of the 6 tournament held that weekend on the courts in Rancho Cordova are on the FPUSA blog.

The same Louis who represented the United States at the 15th World Championships in Southampton, England in 1979 - almost 30yrs ago. He hasn't changed a bit. Same smile as always!

I'm sure you will agree there aren't many sports where age is as unimportant as it is in pétanque.

The great picture on the right comes courtesy of Ken Lee in San Rafael, who has an archive of documents he kept from the late 70's. More to follow!

So the theory is true! Petanque keeps you young!
