Welcome to the website of Pétanque
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.
