Constitution and Rules of Engagement
Following the 2019 AGM, the league has made a minor change to its consitution.
The Secretary introduced a draft amendment to Section 5 of the Constitution. This is intended to strengthen the data privacy arrangements following the introduction of the GDPR Regulations. The meeting endorsed the change, including each club signing a Consent Opt-In Form. The revised Constitution would be placed on the web site.

Clarification of promotion/relegation
The number of promotion places is fixed as a guaranteed minimum of 2, but may be extended if the overall number of teams in each division changes at the start of the following season. There are no fixed places for relegation, even though there may be references during the season to teams “fighting relegation”. This will be determined at the start of the following season as part of the annual review of the league structure.
The official rules of the game of pétanque are published by the Fédération Internationale de Pétanque et Jeu Provençal.
