Dear reader,

​Nelson Ranch Spring Tournament

​Sunday March 1, 2020

​UPDATE - message from Christophe at NRPC:
The tournament roster for March 1st at Nelson Ranch is almost full. In fact, there are only 2 more spots available.

At this point, I will only accept a team if I also get a second team to balance out the roster. I need to keep the roster at an even number of teams.

You can still register for the event, but I will only confirm you if I get another team.
Registration went fast this time. Looks like some Texans are ready to play some petanque!

​Previous message from Christophe at NRPC:
"Nelson Ranch Petanque Club will be hosting its first tournament of the 2020 season on March 1st, 2020 at the Nelson Ranch Courts.

Check in is at 9 AM & the games begin at 9:30 AM.

​The tournament will be a Select Doubles, which means you have to find your own partner to form a team. If you need help finding a partner, please let me know and I will try to help match you up with someone. I can't guarantee to find you a match, but I may have some suggestions on who's looking, etc. Please try and find a partner on your own first. Best bet is to start asking the folks you practice with. There are lots of good choices here in Austin.
The tournament will consist of 3 qualifying games, then a lunch break, then 3 playoff rounds. After qualifying games, the top 8 teams with move on to the Quarter finals. The rest of the teams go to the Consolante bracket. Lunch will be the usual pot luck, please bring a dish to share. The club will provide a meat dish.

Water will also be available. Due to limited space, the tournament will be limited to the first 20 teams to register.
To sign up, please reply to with the names of both players on your team. You will pay the entry fee of $15 per player at check-in on the morning of the tourney. I have attached a flyer with all the information. If you have any questions, please email me at

Hope to see a big turnout for the first event of the year!"
