Long after the final ball was played in Liverpool, a £32,000 Boccia England legacy programme, is setting out to improve the lives of people with disabilities across Merseyside.

The funding, invested by The National Lottery, is being used to establish a new boccia club, hold ‘come and try’ sessions in a range of community settings and support local clubs and players. Competitive opportunities will be set up so that players can thrive and improve in the sport.

The legacy project has so far seen boccia played in train stations, hospitals, shopping centres and even a floating pontoon on the Albert Dock.

Boccia England is working with a range of partners to make this project possible including Greenbank Sports Academy, Merseyside Sports Partnership and Liverpool Council.
