As many as 163 athletes will attend the 16th Asian Petanque Championship, to be held for the first time in Hanoi from December 12-16.
They will compete for medals in men’s, women’s and junior’s triples, doubles, and shooting and mixed doubles events.

Doan Tuan Anh, Head of the Vietnam Petanque team, said Thailand, Laos and Cambodia are their three strongest opponents.

Vietnam’s national squad and the Hanoi club are expected to bag at least one gold each at the tournament, especially as they have quality players who have triumphed at previous SEA Games and Asian Indoor Games.
