Petanque (boules) tournament in Parc Borely?

Does anyone know when the boules tournament is being held this year? I thought it was supposed to be in July, but I have searched the web and this forum and can't find any information on it.

Boules is played there every day. Jus follow the sound (of the balls and the arguing) and look for men with a clandestine glass of pastis in their hand.

If you are talking about Mondial la Marseillaise de pétanque, then it is still in Parc Borely from 7 - 11 July,

If on the other hand, if you are talking about the World Petanque Championships (which was held in a number of venues around Marseille last year), then the answer is here:
