We are pleased to announce the return of the Rocky Mountain Open. With the uncertainty of the pandemic into the early part of 2021, we were unsure whether host tournaments this year. Due to short notice, we are proposing an abbreviated or 1/2 day tournament with shorter qualifying games. The Mile High Pétanque Club will hosts the Annual Rocky Mountain Open Doubles Pétanque Tournament at Centennial Gardens on August 1, 2021.
A team registration fee of $21 will be used towards prizes. Prizes will vary depending on teams participating. Any payments received through PayPal automatically pre-register your team for the event. Pre-registration is required for this tournament on or by Tuesday, July 27th so that the tournament directors can prepare this year’s prizes.
The tournament will be located at Centennial Gardens, 1301 Elitch Circle, Denver, CO 80204.
Teams must check-in in person on the day of the tournament between 9-9:30 a.m. (Mountain Time). Games will begin shortly after 9:45 a.m.
We will be conducting the doubles tournament according to the Swiss Scoring System. Three qualifying games will determine seeding for a single-elimination tournament. All teams are guaranteed to play a minimum of four games.
Although we will be finishing early, you may wish to bring snacks, or a sack lunch or picnic under the shade. No official lunch break will be provided, but there will likely be time to eat between games. It is also advisable to bring a hat, plenty of water, and sunscreen.
Players and teams may register here.
Come try your luck! Tournaments are a lot of fun! Hope to see you there!
