By Mr.Bordsenius at 2002-08-14

Ammerzoden, The Netherlands - For the 4th time in its existence Jeu de Boules-union L'Ammerzo from Ammerzoden, The Netherlands has organized an international petanque tournament. Due to the financial contribution by Rüttchen Den Bosch BV, Formido Bouwmarkten Zaltbommel and Transportbedrijf De Hart from Ammerzoden there where great prizes to be won by the players.




.On Saturday August 3, 2002 a triples tournament was held and on Sunday August 4, 2002 a doubles tournament was played. Altogether more than 320 players from Belgium, France, Germany and The Netherlands visited the Boulodrome L'Ammerzo which consists out of 32 outdoor and 16 indoor lanes. There has been some great petanque in Ammerzoden due to the visit of William Vanderbiest (2 times junior world champion), Serge Podor (former number 5 of the world) and the two times Dutch champion Marco van Saane. Funny detail: neither of these 'cracks' made it to the final game!!!
