European Cup for Clubs - 2021

Despite the ongoing uncertainty about Covid-19, travel restrictions etc, we have to accept that Covid-19 will be with us for some time to come. On Saturday, 14 August, the CEP Directors met to discuss our options for the European Cup for Clubs 2021. We believe it will be possible to organise the CEP’s flagship tournament, even if some restrictions are still necessary.
Therefore, we confirm our European Cup for Clubs will take place in the Boulodrome Gilbert Louis, Saint Yrieix from the 2 to 5 December (week 48) 2021.

The tournament is limited to 32 teams - The delegation from each federation will also be limited to "only the team and a coach" - to be clear, a maximum of 8 players and 1 coach. We will not accept family or friends with a delegation.
Of course the normal rules apply - a team of 6 players must include one player of the opposite gender and a team of 7 or 8 players, two players of the opposite gender. Further details will be published as they become available

European Triples Championships
Due to the ongoing uncertainty and concern about the “Delta and Beta variants” of COVID-19, as well as the logistical challenges with differing quarantine and health regulations across European nations, the Board of Directors on Saturday took the difficult decision to cancel all our European Triples championships which were to be held in 2021.
