One of Ibiza's beautiful beaches, just 50 miles off the coast of Spain, across from Valencia
For those of you who are interested in playing abroad next summer, here is a calendar of some significant tournaments that FPUSA teams have entered in past years.
Mind you, the level is always very challenging, hence the requirement for those interested to officially represent the FPUSA to be granted approval by the FPUSA Sport Committee.
However unofficial teams are free to go on their own and do not need Sport Committee approval.
The FPUSA has just received a formal invitation for an official FPUSA Team from :
FEDERACION BALEAR DE PETANCA
DELEGACION DE IBIZA Y FORMENTERA
For the 17th int’l de Petanque of the “Island of Ibiza”, scheduled on May 27th thru 29th, including full room and board.
Team of 3 + Coach, Sport Commitee approval required.
More details available from RCPIERREsq@hotmail.com
The following tournaments do not include a formal invitation offering room and board at this time, though some of them could come up with one within the next few months depending on their sponsorship. As it goes, an update will be posted on our Blog:
La Marseillaise a Petanque
July 3rd thru 7th in Marseilles, France, of course.
Int’l Espaci Occitan
