Scoring Update Policy – To clarify questions which have been raised in the allocation of certain scores,
the following is to be the standard.

    • Disqualification 13-0 or 11-0
    • Forfeit  13-0 or 11-0
    • Bye  13-7 or 11-6

To ensure consistency of standard applied to umpiring in the sport of petanque, PFA is developing a pathway for the development of umpires.
PFA defines umpires as follows:

    • Level 1: Club Umpire
    • Level 2: State Umpire
    • Level 3: National Umpire
    • Level 4: Confederation Umpire
    • Level 5: International Umpire

To support these umpires the PFA Director of Umpiring has developed a series of workshops and examinations for Levels 1-3. Development and accreditation for Level 3 and 4 is managed by FIPJP. For opportunities to qualify as a PFA Umpire, contact your club, State Director of Umpiring or the National Director of Umpiring.
