Boccia changes lives! Participating is proven to not only improve physical health, but also mental and emotional wellbeing.

For around half of our regular players, boccia is the only sport available to them due to the severity of their disabilities.

Paralympic boccia athlete, Louis Saunders, said:

“I wasn’t strong enough for wheelchair basketball, not fast enough for wheelchair racing, and not agile enough for wheelchair tennis. I love sport, I want to be the best and sadly I didn’t really have that chance, that opportunity, because of the nature of my disability. But that was before boccia, now I’ve been given a chance and I’ve made the most of it.”
