COVAD-19 : shutdown

This is a joint statement by Pétanque Associations of both the East Midlands and Leicestershire regarding the COVAD-19 pandemic situation

In consultation with the Regional Safeguarding Officer who has been monitoring National Developments we are suspending all planned pétanque events until further notice

Whilst we would like to get back to normal as quickly and as safely as possible, our Associations' duty of care towards our members necessitates observing all government advice and taking every possible precaution to slow down the advance of the virus

Let us all be patient with the current situation and advice given with a view to healthier and happier times ahead

Winning Women


Kath B and Clare C were winners of the Open Ladies Pairs on Sunday 1st March at Rainworth Pétanque Club, a venue described in glowing terms on the Pétanque England website and featuring in our Region Qualifying Competition this coming summer season

Making light of a throwing hand finger broken in two places (Kath) and not having thrown a boule since October (Clare) this mother and daughter team went unbeaten with five wins (+37)
