The winning combination

This year's ITER Games, held for the 8th consecutive year, offered 600 participants from the ITER community and neighbouring towns the opportunity to compete in a number of sports events, including tennis, kayaking, trail running and mountain biking.

Participants of all ages enjoyed a variety of sporting events on a beautiful end-of-summer day in Provence. (Click to view larger version...)
Participants of all ages enjoyed a variety of sporting events on a beautiful end-of-summer day in Provence.
The pétanque and football tournaments were intense, with players from all over the world ... some playing for the first time, and other old hands who could teach novices all about technique.

The ITER Games are becoming a popular tradition for ITER staff and contractors to mingle with the local communities, get to know about the various sports associations they can join, and have a relaxing Saturday afternoon with colleagues, friends and family.

The village of Vinon-sur-Verdon kindly offers its main square for a communal lunch with an entertaining award ceremony and an enthusiastic welcome from Mayor Cheilan. Healthy competition, Provençal sunshine, and good food in a beautiful setting—a winning combination for another successful ITER Games.
