Dear NYPC members,

You may not be aware but due to a problem with the courts at Bryant Park, we allowed La Boule New Yorkaise to use the courts of Parade Ground for the Memorial Tournament.

Following, please find a very nice thank you note from their President:

“On behalf of La Boule New Yorkaise, I would like to thank you for allowing us to use your wonderful pétanque terrain in Prospect Park, Brooklyn to hold our Memorial Tournament this past Sunday. We had a wonderful day of pétanque with the weather cooperating, the setting only adding to the enjoyment.

Though I have not been to all the clubs in the U.S., I believe that this is the only World Championship-style pétanque terrain in America. The variety of surfaces certainly makes for interesting play and puts a premium on skill and technique. And I am sure the terrain is bound to get more interesting and even better.

We owe your club a debt of gratitude, and I hope this is the beginning of a great collaboration to make the pétanque scene in New York even better.”


Ernesto Santos

President, La Boule New Yorkaise
