Inter-Regional Competition

The Inter-Regional tournament is Petanque England’s biggest annual competition and is the highlight of the Petanque year for many PE members. The tournament comprises two divisions, and within each division there is a Championship (eight teams per regional squad) and a Challenge (four teams per regional squad).

Each team within a region’s squad is ranked, and plays against equally-ranked teams from all other regions in their division.

The Presidents Cup aggregates the score of all a regions squads – both Championship and Challenge –  to find the overall best-performing region.

Participating PE Regions hold qualifying competitions to select their players, and the Regions then enter their squads in the competition (it is not possible for individuals to enter directly). Booking of accommodation is also done via the Regions, who make bookings for their team with our partner Isle of Wight Tours.
