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

  • 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.

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. 

Renewal notices are sent to members in January each year and they can renew their membership any time between 1st January and 31st March.

Individual Membership of Pétanque England is administered locally by our 17 Regions. The regional boundaries are based loosely on County lines although there are some overlaps. Each Region sets its own Regional fee for Adult membership, which is collected by PE as a precept. The Regional precept is added to the current National fee to make the total fee due to join Pétanque England and the Region. A list of regions showing their fees and membership secretary contact is shown at the bottom of this page.

Petanque players who do not belong to a PE member club are welcome to join as Independent members in their local Region and have the same rights as club members.

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

To transfer your membership to another club please contact your Regional Membership Secretary who can manage this for you. Where the change of club also involves a change of region then please contact the National Membership Secretary.


Clubs that are members of Pétanque England are affiliated to a 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 membership fee is £35. Clubs must have at least 6 individual members of Petanque England including their Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.



Adult membership fees comprise a standard National fee plus a Regional fee that is set by each region. The total amount is paid to Petanque England, who then pass on the Regional fee to the appropriate region to support their local activities. Junior fees are fixed at £5 for all regions, except for Devon who charge an additional £2 regional fee.
