The National League Competition is an annual event and is very popular with the clubs in Wales. Each year the competition is fiercely fought to win the respective league title and, where possible, gain promotion to the next division. Even though there is a competitive element to these games the atmosphere is friendly and enjoyable.
The competition runs weekly, every Wednesday, this year from May to July. Teams will play both home and away fixtures.
The National League is currently the only league affiliated to the WPA. However, there is the BIG (Boules in Gwent) League, which is run by a small dedicated committee. Should you require further information on the BIG League, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we can put you in touch with the organisers.
The 2021League season commences on 5 May 2021. 12 Teams have entered, a decrease of 10 (primarily due to the affects of the coronavirus pandemic) from 2019, the last season played, and these have been divided into two Divisions of 6 Teams.
Any query regarding League or League Cup/Plate matters should be addressed, in the first instance, to the League Secretary – league_sec [at] welshpetanque [dot] org [dot] uk
