A covered Petanquodrome for the 2022 Wordl Championships in Benin

petanquodromeWitnessing once again that there is an abyss between those who move like windmills on certain social networks and those who work effectively, the government meeting held on Monday August 10th at the Sports Ministry of Benin on the initiative of CASB President, Mr. Ibrahima Idrissou, with the presence of the FIPJP President, endorsed the creation of a covered pétanquodrome in Cotonou for the Men's World Championships which will take place in December 2022...

The principle had already been decided at the national level under the leadership of Mr. Idrissou and a working meeting brought last Thursday in Paris the Sports Minister of Benin, Mr. Oswald Homeyki, the FIPJP President, the officials of a Parisian architectural firm and an engineer specializing in the construction of public buildings. After more than two hours of discussions intended to finalize the main directions of the construction but also the durability and the diversity of its use after the championships, the agreement was reached on the construction of a covered site of approximately 4,000 meters square and having the capacity to receive approximately 2,500 spectators.


The Sports Minister of Benin, Mr. Oswald Komeyki, already proved his attachment to pétanque in 2018 by posing to support the candidacy

During this meeting, held under the chairmanship of Mr. Kakpovi, Secretary General of the Ministry, in the presence of officials from the main sectors of the Ministry including the Director of sports and socio-educational infrastructures, and an architect to collaborate, for the Beninese part , with the French designer, the main question was that of the site to be retained, the choice of a building near the life centers of the capital to allow the reception of players and courses throughout the year, seeming to prevail, in terms of strategy and sustainability, on a seaside site, certainly more elegant in appearance, but less practical in terms of access and regular operation. The issue will be decided next month in agreement with the city of Cotonou so that the establishment of the APS - preliminary draft - can be completed before the end of the year. For the organizational part, the members of the Beninese Federation have already formed the competent committees and Mr. Azéma gave them a vade mecum for the follow-up of the preparation of the competitions. A very constructive meeting which marked the total support of the Beninese Government both for the World Championships and for the indoor pétanquodrome which will undoubtedly be the largest and most beautiful in Africa, as well as for Pétanque in general since the Ministry of Sports advocates the creation of petanquodromes in all neighborhoods to ensure the animation and the gathering of young people.
