Our tournaments are currently on hold as we adapt to conditions dictated by the current pandemic. We hope to soon be turning the corner and reestablishing a tournament calendar. Below was our 2019 tournament schedule:

In 2019 the Mile High Pétanque Club has several Denver tournaments planned. Many tournaments are open to all players. Tournaments costs vary and can be paid by check (see below) or Paypal in advance of tournament day. All of our tournaments this year are at Centennial Gardens except our first one.

Mile High Pétanque Club conducts tournaments according to the Swiss Scoring System.

Preregistration for tournaments is necessary either through email or directly through online payment.

For full-day tournaments, teams must register in person on the day of the tournament beginning at 9 a.m. (Mountain Time). Games will begin shortly after 10 a.m.
Morning games will determine seeding for a single-elimination tournament in the afternoon. All teams are guaranteed to play a minimum of four games.

Be sure to bring a sack lunch or picnic under the shade. We will pause for lunch after qualification rounds.
