We are pleased to announce that the 2022-23 competition calendar is here, dates for competitions can be found on our events page. Entries will open for all competitions on the 1st September. 

There are a few amendments for next season: 

  1. The BE Cup competition is no longer invite-only. If you fancy a challenge this season, coming up against the best boccia players in England then enter The BE Cup. There will be 3 opportunities to compete and make your case to qualify for The BE Cup Finals in May 2023! Please note this competition involves the best BC1-4 players in England, in line with the Paralympic pathway it is a challenging competition aimed at experienced boccia players. Boccia England has set a criteria that players must have a minimum of a regional classification to compete in this competition.
  2. There is now an opportunity for players to enter 2 Heathcoat Cup competitions! 
  3. As both the Heathcoat Cup and BE Cup are now open entry, players are restricted to only enter one competition pathway, either The BE cup or Heathcoat Cup, players cannot enter both.
  4. These competitions will be played under BISFed RulesV.2.0 

Competition programme rationale 

Boccia England is currently in the final stage of our Back to Boccia Roadmap, looking forward to the first full competition season since 2018/19. In pulling our competition offer together we must consider Boccia England resources, venue suitability and cost, competition location and format. While we believe that this competition schedule is the best option for us this season, we understand that our offer doesn't always meet the needs of all of our boccia members. As we head into the first year of our new 10-year strategy we will undertake a review to help put plans in place to meet as many needs as possible during the 2023-24 season.  

Coming Soon 

There will also be a Teams and Pairs competition on Saturday 1st October in Stoke Mandeville for BC1-4 players. Entries for this will open on the 1st September. More information on this competition will be available very soon.
