We kick off the new year with our first ParaGames Event – Boccia!

Using a huge amount of skill and precision, players will take it in turns to aim their balls closest to the target ball known as the “jack”. Loved by all ages, Boccia can be adapted to include all disabled people and provides the opportunity to be active, develop teamwork and hand/eye coordination skills.
