Dears Pétanqueurs,

This past weekend Ricard Open Tournament was terrific!

More than 22 Triplettes showed up on Sunday May 2 under great summer weather.

The tournament went very smoothly all day; players were able to enjoy a fresh Ricard or glass of Rosé from Jerome Selection along with a delicious choice of sandwiches made by Restaurant Le P’tit Paris Bistro. We saw familiar faces as well as new faces, such as a Team from D’Artagnan, lead by our friend Ariane Daguin.

At the end of the day every single player went back home with a Ricard prize, our main sponsor.

The most talented players that day went home with a multitude of gifts from Ricard and Jerome Selection. So many that they had to carry them in a (Ricard) bag! Most of the Ricard products (such as glasses, bottle openers, thermo bags, etc…) are impossible to find in the USA therefore giving them a Priceless value!
