Drôme – Romans-sur-Isère – A new site for the Petanque Masters

The pétanque Masters, which will be held from August 26 to 28, will not take place in the city center, but on the Étournelles site, near the Roger-Blachon pétanque stadium.

The redevelopment work on Place Jean-Jaurès requires finding a new site for the Masters of pétanque. This official competition of the French Federation of Pétanque et Jeu Provençal and initiated by Quarterback will return for a ninth year in the city of Jacquemart. It will take place from August 26 to 28 on the Étournelles site, located to the north of the city. The event, which has eight stages, brings together the world’s elite players as well as several thousand spectators. ” This event is now closely linked to our city.insist Marie-Hélène Thoraval, mayor of Romans and the city’s sports deputy, Damien Got. The Petanque Masters, without a stop in Romans, would not have the same flavor. Over the years, we have been able to demonstrate our efficiency in the organization and success of this stage, which has become essential. It constitutes a beautiful showcase for our city and well beyond. A step which could not be without the renewed support of Valence Romans Agglo which covers the registration fees (€59,400) “.

Committed volunteers

Such an event would not be possible without the support of the local club, La pétanque romanaise. ” Changing location is a challenge, but in Romans, we like challenges and we will be able to meet them, assures the dynamic president, Philippe Polleux. The configuration will be different, we will have to take the trees into account: the big advantage is that we will be in the shade. What we want is to preserve this very special atmosphere which pleases our partners so much and this popular side which distinguishes this stage from the others. “. Proof that the project is moving forward, a meeting with volunteers has already been held. The organization has between 60 and 70 volunteers for the smooth running of the event.
