Membership requires approval

Expires 31/12/2018

Scottish Petanque Association

International Petanque Licence Application & Renewal System

You must be a member of an affiliated club or an individual member of the SPA to hold a licence.

If you wish to join the SPA as an individual member, you can do so by applying for a licence. Once you've applied, we'll send you details of how to pay your membership fee. When we've received your fee we'll approve your application and issue your licence.

You must not currently hold an International Petanque Licence which has been issued by another petanque federation.  If you wish to transfer your licence to the SPA from another federation, please email  

If this is your first visit and you are applying for a new licence, click on 'Join Us/Renew' to get started.  You'll need to have a photograph (a head and shoulders shot) available on your computer or device to upload to the system.  

If you are renewing your licence, you simply need to 'sign in' (top right), check your details are current, make any amendments as necessary and renew.  You can renew your licence up to 2 months before your current one expires.

Normally, your licence will take around 3-4 weeks to arrive.  If you need your licence sooner than this please contact us asap.

Your personal data

To issue an International Licence to you, we will need to obtain and store personal information about you.  The following information about you will be held in our secure system:

  • Name
  • Photograph
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Postal address
  • The name of the club you are a member of if applicable
  • Your licence number

This information will be held in our systems for as long as your licence remains valid and for a maximum of 12 months after your licence has expired if you do not renew.  Thereafter, it will be permenantly deleted. You can request that your data is deleted from our systems at any time.

Your information will only be held in electronic form and no paper duplicates will be held.  The information can only be accessed by up to 3 administrators of the database, who follow strict data protection procedures. Administrators are members of the National Executive Committee.

The SPA will only use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To communicate with you personally by email, post or telephone about your membership of the SPA.
  • To gather anonymous membership information for management purposes.
  • On occasion, we are required to send photographs, names and licence numbers of players to other petanque associations and federations as part of the registration process for international competitions.We will not send more information than is necessary to register you for such competitions.  Your personal data will not be shared with anyone else without your consent. 

From time to time we may publish names and photographs of members on our website and social media, for example if they win a competition. You will be asked whether you consent to publish your name and photograph in this way when you apply for or renew your licence. The reason for this is that your photograph when accompanied by your name could be used to identify you.
