Only geezers play pétanque?

Once in a while we need to remind the general public that in France pétanque is not exclusively played by Gauloises-smoking, beret-wearing retired men. Especially since the foreign press often likes to perpetuate that caricature.

This is famous TV actress Ingrid Chauvin, during a recent tournament in Avignon.

Point made? Thank you. From your geezer on duty.




(in the US "geezer" refers to an old man, particularly one of the cranky or eccentric variety)
