With the collaboration of the board, we have been attending to all the needs that were emerging. Today we have one of the best petanque facilities in the whole of Barcelona and that is a source of pride ”. “The important thing is not so much the practice of petanque as we meet and socialize, and with this equipment I think we can do it.”
