Pétanque, sometimes called boules is a sport that is enjoyed by all the family, it can be played for fun in the garden or more seriously up to European and World Championship levels.

AGM 2014

At our recent AGM the meeting agreed with the MC proposal to create the office of National Vice President.

This not only provides cover for our Association in the absence of the National President but we hope will also assist in the succession and transition from one National President to another.

I am now delighted to announce that with immediate effect Martin Eggleton has been co-opted by the MC to the office of National Vice President.

Martin and I have already begun working together with a view of his succeeding me as President, should he be elected by our members, in March 2015 when I complete my current term in office.

Mike Pegg, National President
