On Saturday 11th May 2024, Greenbank Sports Academy in Liverpool played host to a Northwest Local Boccia Competition, which Boccia England was proud to support.

The Northwest Boccia Teams Open” was a highly successful event, which saw 59 players from 13 teams from across the North of England, Wales and Scotland competing throughout the day.

32 matches through a combination of group stages and knock-out rounds culminated in a grand final at the end.

After a day of fierce but friendly competition, Stockport defeated Boccia North Wales in the final to be crowned Northwest Boccia Teams Open champions. Scarboccia Kop finished in third place.

The 13 teams competing were supported by a team of 10 dedicated volunteers, led by Pablo Rees. Reflecting on the day, Pablo said, I personally felt that the Northwest Boccia Teams Open went well, following positive feedback from various teams who attended, played in a friendly atmosphere, despite running out of time where we had to reduce some of the games towards the end of the day.  I was very impressed with all the volunteers from the various clubs coming together, who helped make the day run more smoothly.” 

Boccia England would like to thank Pablo and the team of volunteers. We also congratulate all the participating teams
