Membership

SCPA membership is part of your membership of Petanque England (PE), the National Governing Body for Petanque. Membership of PE runs from April 1st until the 31st March.

You must have an PE Licence (registered with SCPA) to play in our 6-a-side or 9-a-side Leagues, or in any of the Regional events.

New member registrations

To register for new Adult Membership of Petanque England in the Southern Region (for the first time), please click here, then select “2022 Southern Counties Adult [PE]” and complete the registration form and online payment. (Alternatively, you can download and complete an Adult Membership Form)

For Junior Membership (under 18s), please do not register online but complete a Junior Membership Form and pass this to your club secretary who will arrange for registration free of charge via SCPA membership secretary. Juniors must have played on three separate sessions at a club before applying for membership.

Existing member renewals (Renew January-March 2022)

To renew your existing PE/SCPA membership, there are several options:

  1. Pay by credit card in your online LoveAdmin account – Click here
    Most of our members renew their Petanque England membership by credit card using the LoveAdmin system and this is our preferred method as it is fully automated.
  2. Contact your club secretary, who may be able to arrange payment on your behalf.
    Please note that you do not need to complete a form to renew your membership. Membership secretaries simply send a list of names of members to SCPA with the payment.
  3. Pay by electronic bank transfer to SCPA (not to PE).After completing your transfer, please email the SCPA membership secretary who will then manually update your LoveAdmin account to “Paid”.
  4. Pay by cheque, payable to “SCPA“.
    Please send to: 
    Carrie Litchfield, SCPA Membership Secretary, Flat 6, Forton Lodge34a Forton Road, GOSPORT, PO12 4TN.
    It is very important that you make your cheque out only to “SCPA” and not any other variant of this.

You do not need to complete an application form to renew your existing membership.

Finally, please, please do not send cheques or other money directly to Petanque England for membership, as this causes a great deal of confusion!
