Children and adults of all ages with additional needs or disabilities can enjoy the world of the Paralympic sport of Boccia with YMCA East Surrey.
Boccia is similar to Bowls, and is a sport played in over 40 countries worldwide. Unlike Bowls, this is not a sedentary game for the retired – regular players take the game very seriously and become highly competitive, which guarantees a lively and exciting game for both players and audience alike!
As Boccia is played from a seated position it is an ideal sport for players in wheelchairs but is enjoyed by players of all ages and abilities.
Boccia is a social and interactive game where participants can develop their team work and hand/eye coordination skills. We do ask that participants are supported throughout the session by a parent or carer.
