To all members of the Jersey Pétanque Association
These are indeed difficult and testing times.
Pétanque, for most of us, has been a game that is basically a social occasion and I am sure that we are all missing that contact.
I know that some of you are keeping up your skills either by playing with family members or going out alone and having a throw but that is no substitute for the Business, Parish or other Leagues and Club competitions.
However, the present crisis will come to an end and eventually we will get back to normal.
All European competitions are currently on hold and the Women's Triples that was due to take place in Spain in June is now scheduled for the end of October and the beginning of November.
The Inter Club Cup for Clubs is scheduled for the end of November and the European Singles, Doubles men/women and the Mixed Doubles is due to take place 17 -20th September. All these are obviously subject to change if the Covid 19 epidemic continues.
The Coaching for Coaches Course in Luxembourg has been moved to next year, as has the Home Nations that was due to be played in Troon, Scotland. The SPA hopes that the venue will be the same.
We do not yet know if the Inter Insular will go ahead this year and it may be another casualty of this situation.
Obviously all Club and JPA competitions are on hold and are dependent on the Government and Public Health restrictions and guidance.
I hope that you are keeping well and are following the safeguarding rules and are looking forward to getting back on the terrains hoping that we have not lost our skills!!
Take care and do keep to the rules and guidance on social distancing.
Chairman, Jersey Pétanque Association
