Posh Lunchtime Business League - winter and summer
Inter Parish Pétanque League
JPA Winter and Summer League
Because the Pétanque leagues are played outside, physical contact is minimal or non-existent and the sport is of low intensity the JPA Committee has decided that all League matches can be resumed with effect from the end of July.
It is, however, important that all players participating in League matches adhere strictly to the guidelines and conditions set out below. The risk of contracting Covid 19 is very low but it is not zero.
Covid 19 Rules and Conditions
* All players to observe the social distancing of 1 metre from other players who are not members of their household.
* To avoid handling and possible cross contamination all circles should be drawn (No prefabricated rings to be used). – Reminder - circles should be no larger than 50cm and no smaller than 35cm.
* Each player should use their own cochonnet when it is their teams turn to throw the jack.
* Boule should not be picked up by anyone other than their owner.
* Contact details should be kept of all participants by the home team captains.
* There should be no hospitality.
* Frequent sanitising of equipment and hands should be carried out during the match.
* No handshaking or kissing before or after a match.
* Equipment used (boule, cochonnet etc. should be sanitised after the match.
* A face covering can be worn if people want extra protection.
If these guidelines and conditions are followed by all players there is no reason why League matches can not be played safely by JPA members.
They are based on the latest medical advice and correspond with the Jersey Sport guidance for moving to Level I.
The risk posed by Covid 19 is greatly reduced in the Island and by following these guidelines you will be supporting the Government of Jersey in fighting the Coronavirus pandemic.
If you have any concerns or questions please contact me or a member of the Committee.
Keep well and play safely.
Derek Hart, Chairman Jersey Pétanque Association
JERSEY OPEN 2021
Regretfully, the 2021 Open Triples/Doubles has had to be cancelled as per the following communications from the respective club Presidents -
“Given the current state of the pandemic we have come to the reluctant conclusion it will not be possible to run our Open Doubles, as a joint competition with the Carrefour Open Triples, as planned. Current restrictions will no doubt be eased as vaccination progresses, but there is as yet no realistic timetable as to when or what that will be. We do not know, for example, whether numbers will be restricted, nor if games would need to be modified to meet safe play guidelines. In addition, there are the very real problems that our visitors will have to confront with transport and accommodation.
It is of course our plan, after two cancellations, to hold an Open on the same weekend in 2022 and we very much hope you will be able to join us then.
In the meantime, do keep safe and well.”
Peter Blampied President – Jersey Pétanque Club
"The Carrefour PC is really disappointed that we've had to cancel our Open Triples again this year as we were very much looking forward to welcoming you all to our new home.
Hopefully we will be able to welcome you in 2022 to our new facilities which, subject to a couple of final formalities and Covid restrictions, we will be moving into this spring. Our new terrains will be in the south east of the Island at Grouville Football Club with whom we are in the process of finalising a long-term partnership.
More importantly, stay safe and well. All the best until next year."
Michel Morel Chairman -Carrefour Pétanque and Social Club.”
