Following today’s Coronavirus briefing by the PM and the government’s advice, we regret that:
- We have suspended all petanque competitions, meetings and leagues in the SCPA until further notice. We will consider how we might resume activities later in the year, when it is safe and practical to do so.
- This year’s Weekend of Petanque is cancelled (all entry fees will be refunded)
We recommend that all clubs in our region also follow the government’s directive regarding social distancing and suspend all their activities accordingly.
This is obviously very disappointing for everyone but we must recognise that we are going through an unprecedented global crisis and we have no alternative but to follow government advise in order to allow the NHS to cope with the massive pressure they will be under.
