The Apéro-Pétanque 2016 : A Great Success!

September 30, 2016 / Posted by   SDC Vieux-Montréal  Oliver Marshall 

The 3rd edition of the annual Old Montreal bocce tournament took place on September 14 and 16.

Over these days, almost 280 pétanque players came out for this friendly competition and were able to do some networking in a lively and pleasant environment.






We would like to congratulate CECI Gestion Canada on their grand win in the Finals on September 16th, earning them the title of back-to-back annual champions !


The SDC Vieux-Montréal who has been organizing the tournament for 3 years now would like to extend a warm thank you to its 2016 partners and suppliers : Old-Port of Montréal, Maison Christian Faure, Bar à Beurre and the Fédération de Pétanque Québec.
