Annot Tournament 2023

September 16, 2023

In September 2018, pétanque players from around Austin, Texas, and beyond, gathered to visit the little village of Annot, France and play a pétanque tournament with the locals. There were seven triplets from Texas matched up with seven triplets of locals.

Because the 2018 tournament was such a success, five years later in 2023, we are planning to do it all over again.

We are still working with the mayor of Annot to work out the details, but we now know that the tournament date is set for Saturday, September 16, 2023. The rain date will be on Sunday if necessary.

We can only hope that everything will go as smoothly as it did in 2018, but we know things will never be as nice without Marion's sister, Brigitte Bermondy, who passed away shortly after our visit last time.

This event is also likely to be an opportunity for Brigitte's family, and all of her many friends, to get together to memorialize her.

Annot (pronounced An-not) is located in the beautiful foothills of the alps near Nice, France.
