Yorkshire Region came into being in January 2021. Previously Pétanque England had a region called Northern which covered Yorks, Lancs and Cheshire but this changed when Pétanque North West was established in December 2020 and Yorkshire rose from the ashes of Northern.
The region is called Yorkshire Pétanque and has a calendar of events throughout the county and maintains qualified coaches and umpires. They also select the players who represent the county in inter-regional events. It’s run by an elected Committee and clubs and individuals can join. There are 37 places to play in Yorkshire.
