Petanque Amelia Island Open 2019 this weekend

Sharing is caring!

The largest Petanque event in the Americas  keeps growing,  welcoming players and spectators from around the world to this enchanted Florida island. Play unfolds alongside a harborfront and historic district that beckon with sunshine, shops, restaurants, and a true feeling of joie de vivre – not unlike the French Mediterranean coast, where the sport began.

For complete information on registration and weekend activities, visit https://www.ameliaisland.com/landing-pages/Petanque.  Thus far 178 teams from around the nation and the world have signed up to play in the tournament.

Even if you are not a player, you might want to stop by to watch the games and enjoy some refreshments.

Events take place in Fernandina Beach City Parking Lots C and D along the Amelia Riverfront for 3 days, November 8-10, 2019.
