On 19 July all legal restrictions were removed as the country moved to step 4 of the Government’s roadmap.

Despite this, when Boccia England set out the roadmap for boccia, it was agreed that specific guidance with suggested recommendations for safe activity would exist beyond the lifting of national restrictions. This is primarily due to participant risk factors, to allow us to be confident in preparing for safe boccia activity for our community as we monitor the ongoing situation, and from the insight we have gained from you taking part in our Back to Boccia surveys.

From Friday 20 August, Boccia England moves to stage 3 of the Back to Boccia Roadmap.

While this allows for a wider range of activity to take place, we are not making changes to our Club and Group guidance at this stage. We continue to recommend that many measures remain in place to keep everyone in boccia as safe and comfortable as possible while we gradually return after time away.

Back to Boccia Roadmap

We appreciate that for much of our community many challenges remain, and we will continue to do what we can to support your return to the court. We will continue to update and provide guidance, resources, and drop-in sessions so please use the Back to Boccia Hub and get in touch with us if you need support.

The following Club and Group recommended guidance has been updated and outlines what step 4 of the government roadmap means for boccia.

Club and Group Guidance

Whilst all legal restrictions are removed, we hope you will continue to plan and deliver activity with our guidance in place. This will minimise the risk to all individuals involved and will provide reassurance to those anxious about returning.
