HOT NEWS! HOT WINS THE ZAYTOUNA LOUNGE OPEN TOURNAMENT.

Hello everyone and welcome.

Wow! HOT did it again and kept the cup at Zaytouna Lounge tournament . This year we had to expend to five extra courts.  Those courts were for sure Sauvage style. But could not be made differently  because of the discovering of City’s cables underneath the courts. So we could not use a tractor to level the whole thing out.  It was fun and challenging. It did  remind me of when I first learned to play petanque with my grand father at young age on grass, parking lots and  beach near Bordeaux. The field of  twenty four teams was great because most of the teams that came from out of town or State  stayed from the day before and participated .  It was so fantastic  to see all those happy faces  ready to play  an entire new tournament with just a little sleep. To make it the final you had to play  7 games. It was San Antonio  with Nicolas Bienvenu and Michel Costa against HOT with Amine Najah and Arsene Dupin.  We got the upper hand and won against Nicolas and Michel.  It was for sure a Petanque Extravaganza weekend.  Thank to everyone that participated at the HOT tournament the day before and came back as early as 8 am to set up and participate at the Zaytouna Lounge tournament. This was one of the biggest turn out at Zaytouna. Thank you Amine for welcoming us.  We hope to see you all next year.  Merci.
