Sue Berry is the only parent who now represents England on court alongside her son as his BC3 ramp assistant. Here Sue tells us how it feels to be part of Matt's dream.

My son, Matt 'Bezza' Berry, is 25-years-old and has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Despite this, over the past 10 years he has persevered to be the very best that he possibly can be in his chosen sport of boccia, and now plays for England and is ranked second in the UK. 

As his Mum, and on-court assistant, I have been privileged to share in his achievements, been proud to see how revered and respected he is by players and officials alike and been in awe of his professionalism and sportsmanship both on and off the court.

When you have a disabled child, you hope for the best for them, but never in your wildest dreams do you think that they will one day win gold medals representing their country around the world and that you will be a part of that.

Matt's love of boccia and his total commitment to the sport has enriched my life in so many ways. I thoroughly enjoy being his on-court assistant in high-level competitions and thrive on the pressure to be the best I can be to ensure that Matt does well.
