Following further work by our Events Group, we can confirm the finalised competition formats and also the prize fund allocation which is £1,500 overall.

Please note on prize money that winners will need to send their bank details to our National Treasurer, Cary Bush by emailing treasurer@petanque-england.uk who will ensure payments are made.

Prize money will only be paid out in the Main Competitions, there are no prizes in the Plate Competitions.

We ask all players to think about their fellow competitors’ enjoyment of the day before taking any decision to withdraw due to elimination from the Main Competitions. If any player wishes to leave early, please have the courtesy to discuss with your opponent prior to departure. This is a matter of respect for fellow members.
