A couple of important points relating to insurance

Risk assessments.

There are some venues that have not yet provided risk assessments and we ask you to complete them and return to me as soon as possible please.

Leisure boules (dog boules).

We have had reports of several players in league matches playing with the lightweight shiny boules. These are not permitted under the international rules by which we play for the very good reason that they are likely to shatter if hit hard by a proper boule and then shards of sharp metal can fly everywhere which is obviously dangerous.

After July 1st anyone trying to play in any EKCPL match with leisure boules will be excluded until they have obtained approved boules. The most cost effective boules are available online from Decathlon, costing £39.99 plus delivery at https://www.decathlon.co.uk/p/3-alpha-competition-solid-petanque-boules/_/R-p-161973?mc=8388731

Playing Guidelines as of 29th March 2021

(these were released by Petanque England inline with government guidelines)

Key points in our Guidelines:

  • Only formally organised pétanque can take place between more than six players or two households;
  • To qualify as formally organised, our Play Safe Guidelines must be followed and venue risk assessments must be carried out;
  • Subject to a risk assessment confirming that there is sufficient space to maintain social distancing, the numbers allowed at a venue can be as many as can be safely accommodated;
  • Club play, leagues, competitions are all allowed to take place if formally organised;
  • Toilet facilities, even if they are inside, can be open, but always be aware that the there is much higher transmission of the virus indoors;
  • You can travel to play in organised pétanque activities in England but you cannot stay overnight;
  • Only players, officials and volunteers directly involved in any activities/organisation are allowed to attend, no spectators;
  • Off pitch, you should not gather in groups any larger than six people in one group you should not mix with anyone in another group the whole time you are at the venue;
  • Maintain social distancing at all times – 2 metres or if not possible, 1 metre with mitigation (face mask or standing side on);
  • Do not share equipment and avoid touching surfaces that may have been touched by other players;
  • Maintain hand hygiene – sanitise regularly;
  • Our ability to play formally without restrictions on numbers depends on players and officials following our Guidelines. We have been warned by the Government that any sport that is not able to follow its own Guidelines may have restrictions imposed.
