04 June 2021 World Championships - Juniors & Women 2021
Word has just reached us that the Petanque Association of Thailand have informed the FIPJP that due to the global spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the 18th Junior and Women World Petanque Championship, originally scheduled to be held in Ayutthaya on November 3-8, 2021 will have to be postponed. Travel restrictions and quarantine requirements have been imposed in Thailand in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 infections while the country is pressing ahead with its vaccination program. At this time it is not known when these events will be rescheduled, but we understand Thailand is proposing the end of the year 2022 or 2023. Meanwhile, and closer to home, we have scheduled a full board meeting for the 10 July to discuss our options and then to decide if our championships - Veterans, Men’s, Espoirs and Juniors can go ahead as planned.
