National Championships

Pétanque New Zealand runs eight National Championships each year. The National Singles (early October), the National Doubles (early November), the National Senior Doubles (early December), the National Women’s Triples, National Triples and Men’s and Women’s Shooting Competition (early March). The National Mixed Doubles was added to the calendar in 2017 (early May). The National Club Championship is late April. Tournament dates do vary, so check the PNZ calendar to confirm.

Entry to the National Singles, Doubles, Mixed Doubles and Triples is open to any financial member of a Pétanque club affiliated to Pétanque New Zealand. To enter the National Senior Doubles, a player must also be over the age of 60 years. To enter the National Women's Triples a player must also be female.

For a club to take part in the Club Championship a team comprises 6 players of whom a minimum 2 must be female.

Details of these Championships will usually be found on the PNZ website. Results for the last few years can be found in the Archives.

Wellington region player names are in bold type.
