The Southern Counties Pétanque Association is one of a dozen or so geographic divisions of the English Pétanque Association (EPA), devoted to promoting the sport of Pétanque. Commonly known as French Boules, the game has an enthusiastic following in the UK where it is truly a family sport, appealing to young and old and to both men and women equally.
I am very pleased to welcome you to the website of the Southern Counties Pétanque Association.
Southern Counties is one of fifteen regions that are affiliated to the English Pétanque Association. Our Association has well over 400 members and well over 20 Clubs to be found across Hampshire, West Sussex, Dorset as well as parts of Surrey and Wiltshire.
Our members can be proud of the significant achievements of our region’s members who represented the English Pétanque Association at international events. They played at the Junior World Championship at Montauban, the European Women’s Espoirs Championship at Dusseldorf and the Women’s World Championship at Montauban. Members also played in the successful EPA Squad in the Home Nations Championship at Edinburgh.
Once again we achieved some success at the EPA Inter-Regional Championships and Challenge Tournament where our Junior Team became the EPA 2013 Inter-Regional Junior Champions. We are all very proud of them.
