Welcome to the website of Pétanque England (PE)!

Pétanque, also known as boules is a sport that is enjoyed by all. We have members of all ages and we cater for everybody from those who enjoy the game socially to those that want to compete internationally at elite level.

Formerly the English Pétanque Association, we are the National Governing Body for the sport in England and are officially recognised by Sport England.

We are members of the World governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Pétanque et Jeu Provençal (FIPJP) and the European governing body, the Confédération Européenne de Pétanque (CEP), we are also members of the Sport + Recreation Alliance.

PE’s structure of 16 regions means there will be a club near you (see the Regions , Club Database or contact one of the Officers for more information). Please get in touch, as we always welcome new players and we would love to introduce you to our sport.
