Pétanque at Arc1950

Arc1950: Pétanque

The Honour of the Owners is at stake!

The Arc 1950 Owners’ Association in partnership with the Retailers Association and the ASL, will be hosting two Pétanque competitions this summer.

To be held on Tuesday 18th and 25th of August – subject to weather and Covid restrictions – and anticipated to run from 6pm ‘til 8pm, all owners of apartments in Arc 1950 are invited to play.

The format is Pairs: Owners versus Retailers – with each match winner scoring one point for their team. Most points wins!

This is a fun event, but obviously with safety at a premium this summer, we will follow all Government guidelines on distancing, masking, and hygiene. And if we cannot meet the standards, then we will of course cancel.

Ideally it will be pairs of players from the same social bubble, to a maximum of 8 pairs. But if necessary, we can pair up singles on the day – though naturally, you won’t be able to whisper tactics in each other’s ears…

The 3 Associations will fund drinks to be provided by a variety of retailers close to the piste (located between 1950 le Brasserie and Le Gourmet Montagnard), and if there is sufficient interest, we would head to one of the village restaurants afterwards for socially distanced chat and meal.

Please indicate your enthusiasm on this form, and we will be in touch regarding the measures each of us needs to take.

So grab your boules and prepare to share your skills, or just come along and meet the neighbours!
