What time is registration?

Where will equipment checks take place?

Equipment Checks will take place at EIS-Sheffield for Boccia Balls, Assistive Devices (ramps and head pointers etc) and wheelchairs. This is to ensure that all players are using equipment that meets the required guidelines as stated in the latest edition of the BISFed rules. All equipment must be checked before the competition starts.

Please also be aware that equipment is subject to random checks at any time during the competition at the discretion of the Head Referee. If equipment fails the random checks the player will be issued with a warning.

N.B. Our team of referees endeavour to complete checks as quickly as possible but if you arrive early you may experience a bit of a wait. Between 5:30pm and 6:30pm we experience high levels of players for equipment checks. We recommend you attend after 6:30pm to avoid the queues!
