The next Congress of the CEP will take place on the 15th April 2018 in the meeting room of the Boulodrome National FLBP, Luxembourg.
28 Federations have registered to particpate in our 2018 EuroCup Championship for Club teams.
The F.I.P.J.P. have chosen an international selection of 4 players with different nationalities, all world champions, to represent them at the 20th edition of the Masters de Petanque.
Two members of the team, Claudy Weibel (Belgium) and Diego Rizzi (Italy,) have the oppertunity to defend their crown and they are joined by two experienced Masters de Petanque players, Khaled Lakhal (Tunisia - 3rd participation) and David Ledantec (France - 2nd participation).
The first objective for this team will be to participate in the Final Four in Istres on September 4th", said the International President Claude Azéma, who thinks this team is "competitive, efficient and homogeneous".
With the team of France (Henri Lacroix, Philippe Quintais, Dylan Rocher, Philippe Suchaud) and that of Madagascar (Tiana Laurens (Thunder) Razanadrakoto, Lahatra Randriamanantany, Allain Samson Mandimby , the 4th player will be known shortly), no doubt this international team will be able to ensure a great petanque event.
With just months to go before the IOC (International Olympic Committee) decides if to include Boule Sports as an additional sport for the 2024 Olympic Games, the FIPJP hope this team will show our sport is universal.
