COVID-19 update | 29 November 2020

From Wednesday 2nd December, regardless of the tier in which your area is placed, our players, clubs and leagues can begin playing again. There are no restrictions on the number of players that can gather outside to play petanque at club venues, but as previously, the numbers that can be safely accommodated must be subject to a formal risk assessment.

Petanque England's latest announcement provides additional important information and we would recommend that club officials read this in detail before resuming normal activities:
If in doubt, please contact who will be happy to advise.

Southern Counties Pétanque Association is one of sixteen regions of Pétanque England, devoted to promoting the sport of Pétanque. Also known as "French Boules", the game has an enthusiastic following in the UK where it is truly a family sport, played by people of all ages and equally enjoyed by both men and women.

If you are new to Petanque and want to know more, you can learn more about the game of Petanque or find a Petanque Club in your area. Everyone is welcome!
