In May 2020 the PFA conducted its first nation-wide survey of petanque players. Over 450 players responded. The Board of the PFA is now engaged in analysing the results of the survey. A Discussion Paper will be distributed in July for feedback from the sector.
In the meantime the raw results - anonymised - are available for interested parties to read. There were 48 questions so it's a big document. Download it here.
A second survey will be conducted of PFA Members (Clubs and Leagues) which will be more-targeted at Club-specific issues - probably in July.
