Celtic Challenge History
In 1989 the Scottish Petanque Association accepted an invitation to play Wales in Cardiff, won by Scotland. The return match was held in Stirling in 1990 and, following a request from Northern Ireland to be included, the Celtic Challenge was formed. In 1991 the Irish Petanque Association was formed and the 3rd Celtic Challenge was held at Clandeboyne, NI.

The Celtic Challenge is played over two days. Each nation supplies 4 teams of 3 players, with the host nation supplying an additional ‘B’ squad. The winner is the squad who achieve the most wins after 12 rounds (when each team have played against all opposing teams). The host nation’s A and B squad play each other in the first 4 rounds on the opening day.

Strong competition coupled with a social and friendly atmosphere combine to make the Celtic Challenge one of the highlights of the pétanque year.
