If participants can’t bring their own boules, they can indicate the need to borrow a set during registration.

When asked for your partner’s name in the registration, we also kindly ask to you provide your partner’s registration number, if known and available.

At the moment, it is not possible to register without a partner. We are exploring options to see if we can find a way to bring individual players together.


The tournament will be played at the Boulodrome de Valkatties. There are 15 outside lanes and 9 inside lanes available for the EuroGames tournament.


The official rules of petanque will apply.
