Petanque Tournament and Training Week

We had a sporty week, with a Petanque Tournament, here on the camping site in Aourir!

Petanque – commonly known in German or English as “Boule” – was the game of our choice today! For our French guests, a well-known sport, for many Germans and Englishmen a almost a new experience.

Also for the purpose of bringing our guests together, we organized a Petanque Week together with the Petanque Club Aourir at the beginning of February. On Wednesday was an introduction and learning day, on Friday training day and on Sunday an exciting Tournament took place. The first international Petanque Tournament at Camping Aourir!

They were days of joy and laughter but also of ambition and excitement. Everybody tried really hard and gave their best – after all, we trained for a several days now and the petanque lust was huge. But most important was the fun and getting to know each other.

In the Tournament, the competition for the first three places was very exciting! Our first women’s team with Viktoria and Andrea took third place. A French duo took second place. And our Seniors, Lahcen and Denis, took first place – a German-Moroccan double.

We also say thanks to our supporters

We would especially like to thank Lahcen, the president of the Petanque Club Aourir. Together with Karim Masin – who also already took care of our great New Year’s Eve party, Lahcen organized everything, first the training and finally the tournament, and brought all the necessary materials. Karim had the idea for this event, was always there, took care of everything and even gave us special training! A big “Tanmird” for both organizers!

Our 1st Petanque Tournament and the Training Week was a great experience, it was so much fun, we assure, another Tournament and Training Week will definitely follow!

We will inform soon enough via Facebook and our website when the next training and tournament will take place. If you are interested in petanque and staying with us at the campsite you can also ask at the reception if there is something planned for the near future, or why don’t you just write us. We are also happy to organise this for larger groups, also in time for your staying on the campsite.
