The WPA Executive Committee is regularly discussing the situation regarding the current outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is continuing to monitor the advice provided by the Welsh and UK Governments and Health Authorities.
Given the current situation The Welsh Pétanque Association wishes to advise our members that all WPA events are, at present, unaffected. We will, however, continue to monitor the situation and if Government advice changes this situation may change and we will advise further.
In the meantime, we recommend all of our members to adopt Government advice with regard to hand hygiene whilst participating in our sport, as well as using tissues to catch any coughs or sneezes.
Pétanque is a tactile sport and for the time being, we think it’s advisable to refrain from handshakes and kissing, adopting the ‘elbow bump’ instead .
As the situation in Wales and the rest of the UK is ever-changing, this page will be updated as the official advice changes.
Below are the relevant official websites:
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Reg Brice.
A long-term member of Wenvoe Petanque Club, and former club Vice-President, Reg had been ill for some time and was admitted to Llandough Hospital just before Christmas.
He passed-away peacefully in hospital on Saturday 4th January 2020 – his wife was with him.
Our sympathies and thoughts are with Reg’s widow and family at this time.
Reg’s Funeral will be held at 11:00 on Friday 31st January at Barry Crematorium.

As announced in the Notice of AGM, the positions of National Secretary & Director of Development are open for election at the 2020 AGM.
In line with the Constitution, I am writing to inform members that neither of the incumbent officers intend to re-stand for their current roles.
As a reminder to any member seeking nomination for these roles, they have a 2-year tenure.
Please also note that there is still a vacancy for the Director of Public Relations, but as this is mid-way through it’s tenure, anyone seeking nomination for this role would only be in position for 1 year.
