We believe playing boccia changes lives!

We are a registered charity and the National Governing Body (NGB) for boccia in England.  We are responsible for all aspects of the sport in England from beginner to expert, providing for all levels of participation and are dedicated to improving the physical and emotional well-being of children and adults with disabilities through boccia.

 

Boccia England is uniquely placed to make a massive difference to the lives of so many people who otherwise would not have access to the benefits sport can bring. Boccia is a totally inclusive sport and can be played by anyone regardless of age, gender, ability or disability.  Boccia is the only sporting option for many severely disabled and older people with limited motor skills.

 

Our mission statement ‘Playing boccia – changing lives’ is driven by our belief that through the power and inspiration of boccia, real change can be achieved to people’s lives.
