First-ever tournament in Morganton, NC!

Khalid Mesbah and Jonathan Halas
Pictured above are the Champions of the inaugural petanque tournament in Morganton, NC, on June 17, 2017. Carolina Petanque and the City of Morganton sponsored an Open Doubles Melee at the new terrains in Catawba Meadows Park.

We managed to field 14 teams of two players for our first Morganton event. There are currently two terrains available for play-- each large enough to accommodate four games at international dimensions. Two additional terrains are under construction. Upon their completion, there will be enough courts to allow 16 games (32 teams) of play at international dimensions or 20 games (40 teams) at regional minimum dimensions.

Thank you, Morganton!
