Petanque players ready for pit battles at championship

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport launched the 2014 National Petanque Championships yesterday morning at the petanque pits of the National Sports Complex.

The competition follows a two-tier format with players divided into Divisions A and B according to standard. “The objective of the tournament is to find talented new players with an eye on participation in the 32nd SEA Games in 2023 [which Cambodia will host],” Bunheng added.
