Mondial de Pétanque/La Marseillaise
Founded in 1961 in association with Paul Ricard, the World Championships celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year. With 480,000 registered players and more than 30,000 official competitions every year, Pétanque is one of the most popular and widely played sports in France. Every year, almost 13,000 participants from every corner of France and Europe, and even further afield, from Japan, Australia, the United States, Madagascar, China and Thailand, enter this famous competition! Like the Tour de France for cyclists or Roland Garros for tennis players, the Marseille World Championships are “the” event for the world of pétanque: the competition with the most press coverage and the most coveted title.
