HomeHow to Join

Individual Membership of Pétanque England is administered locally by our 17 County Regions. The regional boundaries are based loosely on County lines although there are some overlaps.

Each Region sets its own precept for both Junior and Adult membership, the Regional Precept is added to the current National Governing Body fee (£25 for Adults and £5 for Juniors) to make the total fee due to join Pétanque England.

The membership period is from 1st January to 31st December, however when joining after October 1st the subscription will carry through the following year.

Independent members (members not belonging to a club) must join via the Region based on their geographical location.


  • Honorary Life – awarded by the Pétanque England Board for services to our sport
  • Adults – members who are 18 years and older on the 31st December of the current year.
  • Juniors – members under 18 years old on the 31st December of the current year.

Existing members wishing to transfer their membership to another club please contact your National or Regional Membership Secretary who can update the database and will check with the clubs concerned that the transfer is agreed.

Where the change of club also involves a change of region then please contact the National Membership Secretary who can update the database and will check with the regions concerned that the transfer is agreed.

Clubs may apply to become non-voting members of Pétanque England. Clubs which become members of Pétanque England will also be affiliated to an appropriate Region. Clubs will usually affiliate to the Region in which their playing venue is situated but may elect to join a neighbouring region if it is more convenient to their playing practices. The annual membership fee is £35. It is a requirement of our club membership that clubs must have at least 6 individual members of Pétanque England and that all members of the club’s management committee are individual members of Pétanque England.

Clubs can apply for membership by clicking on the button and completing the form.
