National Boccia Day is an annual event to celebrate the sport for those already involved and to raise awareness across the country. Today marks exactly two months to go until National Boccia Day 2021, which will be held on Monday 27th September and celebrated in partnership with Disability Sport WalesScottish Disability Sport and Disability Sport Northern Ireland, with support from Irwin Mitchell.


The theme of this year’s National Boccia Day is Boccia Is Back!, which will celebrate the transition from the virtual to the physical world of boccia across the four home nations.  

In the week leading up to National Boccia Day 2021, we will be showcasing different elements of boccia and how the sport is starting to move back to physical in person activities across the UK.  

And of course, it wouldn’t be National Boccia Day without the boccia community getting involved!  

So how can you be part of the National Boccia Day 2021 celebrations? 


Host an event 

During September we will be asking and supporting boccia clubs, schools and organisations which provide boccia to deliver an NBD themed activity session. Each group that registers will receive a free NBD Activity Pack which will include exclusive activity ideas and stickers along with balloons and bunting to decorate their venue for the celebratory event! The first 20 groups to register will also receive a set of limited edition National Boccia Day 2021 T-shirts.  

Stay tuned to our social media channels for more information on how to register from the middle of August!  


Enter our competitions 

In the week building up to National Boccia Day, following the success of last year, our very popular online competitions will be making a return across our social media channels, providing the opportunity to win limited edition National Boccia Day prizes. 


And much more! 

There are many other ways you can get involved in celebrating National Boccia Day with us, including:
