The annual Boules tournament during the Cannes Film Festival has become a true tradition; it’s the place where a variety of people come together to network, make deals, catch up and meet (potential) clients while having the chance to throw and roll the boules in pétanque.

Pétanque, originally called pieds tanques, which means ‘feet anchored’, is a game that falls into the category of boules sports and is very close to the French hearts. It’s all about throwing the boules the right way!

This year’s winners of the tournament are Tim Johnson and Neil Phelps, congratulations gentlemen!
