Individual membership is open to petanque players of all ages and abilities. There are two types of membership:

  • Adult Competitor – members who are 18 years and older on the 31st December of the current year.
  • Junior Members – members under 18 years old on the 31st December of the current year.

The membership period is from 1st April to 31st March. However, when joining after October 1st the subscription will carry through to the end of the following year. 

Members can renew their membership from 1st January. Reminders are automatically sent by email in March, to anyone who has not yet renewed their membership.

Individual Membership of Pétanque England includes membership of one of our 18 Regions. Each Region sets its own fee for Adult Competitor members, which is paid along with the national fee of £25. The total fee you pay comprises both the National and Region fees.

The competitor fee for each region can be found along with other region details here.

Petanque players who do not belong to an PE-Affiliated club are welcome to join as independent members in their local Region by selecting “unaffiliated” from the club list when registering.

Honorary Life Membership is awarded by the Pétanque England Board to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to our sport.

You can now request transfer of your membership to another club yourself, by using the ‘Transfers’ feature in the Sport:80 platform. contact your Regional Membership Secretary if you need help with this.

Where the change of club also involves a change of region then please contact the National Membership Secretary.


Clubs that are affiliated members of Pétanque England also belong to a PE Region, and can enter teams in PE leagues and other club competitions such as the EuroCup. Clubs usually affiliate to the Region in which their playing venue is located, but may elect to join a neighbouring region if it is more suitable.

The annual club affiliation fee is £35. Clubs must have at least 6 individual members of Petanque England including their Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.

For advice or further information on Club Affiliation, please email

IMPORTANT: When prompted to choose a Role during the signup process, please select CLUB CONTACT regardless of your committee role in the club. Other roles may be added after registering if required.
