Contact us for any further information

 

Many thanks to all who took part in the International Festival of Petanque, Barnard Park, Islington, London, N1 0JW, UK, 4th and 5th June 2016.

 

The overall aim of theLondonaise festival weekend is to promote the sport, and create a major European competition in London. The format allows players of all standards to partake and play in competition with people at their own level.

The event took place on:

Saturday 4th June 2016 - Doubles

Sunday 5th June 2016 - Triples

 

THE RESULTS OF THE 2016 COMPETITION.

The finalists of the doubles were Silvain and Marcel, against Rachid and Fahdi. The Triples was contested between the Claudy Weibel team and Sofiane Lachano's team. 

The only comment that the organisers would like to make is that some games seemed to take an inordinate amount of time resulting in great difficulty in completing the event.

We hope to be back next year but we will need a sponsor who will insist on the final being played by a reasonable time.

Thank you all for coming and hopefully see you next year (2017)

ABOUT US

A bit of history

theLondonaise  is the latest in a long line of London competitions stretching back to the mid 70's, when Piat de Beaujolais sponsored its first triples event in the car park at the Crystal Palace athletics track, courtesy of the Sports Council. 

 

This was organised by the preeminent club in those days, Norfolk Square, and entry was 5 per team, to include a 2 course lunch, bottle of Piat per team and prizes to the value of hundreds of pounds. 

Around 100 teams took part.

Over the years there have been many other sponsors with the most recent being Ricard, who supported the game for 5 years, firstly in Battersea Park, with over 200 teams, and latterly in Chelsea Physic Garden, where space limited the numbers to 70.

Sadly Ricard pulled out after the 2012 event but it was felt that something should take its place, and so theLondonaise was born.

The first event in 2014 was held in Barnard Park, with a prize fund of 3000 and attracted 32 teams, from several different countries, the winners being Rivesaltes from the South of France, beating a Swedish team in the final; two British teams reached the semis, one of which was narrowly defeated 13-12 after a marathon lasting more than 2 hours.

In 2015, again in Barnard Park, there were 76 teams entered, of whom 66 turned up, and with a prize fund of 5000, several teams from overseas played, including 4 world champions and a Catalan team of some merit; they eventually won beating Loy Malbeck and Silvy in the final. 

There was also a team from the original Norfolk Square club, but with a total age of more than 200 years little chance of going far, though Weibel, Vancampenhoudt and Philippe saved their blushes by gifting a couple of points! 

And so to 2016, the same format as 2015, with the teams being reduced to Gold, Silver, Bronze and Wooden; this allows everyone to play at their level and still have a share in the spoils, with even the 'Wooden' victors taking home 125.

Further details of the event will be published as they fall into place.
