Competition Round Up

March has seen some top competitive boccia. At the start of the month we were in Gateshead for some brilliant boccia at the last of the Heathcoat Cup rounds. Thanks to our partner 'Smile Through Sport' for their support on the day. Next, we were in Sheffield and Hatfield for the thrilling BE Cup Playoffs North & South gearing up for the BE Cup Finals in May.

We are now looking forward to the Lord's Taverners Boccia School Finals on the 20 April, the Heathcoat Cup Finals on 21 April and the Super League Fixture Day 3 on 22 April. Keep updated on all the action and live results via our website/ social media. Spectators are always welcome.

barryThank you Barry 

Our England Performance Group Head Coach, Barry Bowden, has recently stepped down from his role. Barry's contribution to the players and the system itself has been invaluable over the many years that he has been involved in the sport. Athletes and coaches look up to Barry and it is our belief that his personable approach to coaching is something we can all learn from. 

From everyone at Boccia England, thank you Barry for making such a difference to the sport and the people within it.
