How to get involved

Host an event 

During September we will be supporting more than 70 boccia clubs, schools and organisations which provide boccia to deliver an NBD themed activity session. Each group that registered has received a free NBD Activity Pack which includes exclusive activity ideas and stickers along with balloons and bunting to decorate their venue for the celebratory event! The first 20 groups to register also received a set of limited edition National Boccia Day 2021 T-shirts.

If you didn't register but would still like to run a National Boccia Day activity that would be great! You can download some of the materials below.
