TAG BOCCIA MONTH

June 2018

International boccia player

The Arthrogryposis Group (TAG) has partnered with Boccia England, the National Governing Body for boccia to increase opportunities for its members to become more physically active through the sport of boccia. In June this year boccia clubs across England will be opening their doors and welcoming members of TAG to join them in the first ever TAG Boccia Month to give boccia a go!

Boccia is an action-packed inclusive and sociable game. It can be played in a competitive situation (like this international player from Slovakia who has Arthrogryposis) or for fun with people of all ages and abilities. Hugely enjoyable and easy to learn, the idea of the game of skill and strategy is to throw your balls closest to the ‘jack’, the white ball, to win. Boccia can be played by people with any disability and it is ideal for athletes in either power or manual wheelchairs, as the main rule of the game is that players must remain seated throughout; ambulant players throw from a chair.

Boccia Clubs are providing free fun and engaging taster sessions to TAG members with the ambition of encouraging as many of you to join them and take part regularly.

Check out the list of Boccia clubs and dates >>

This is a really exciting opportunity and one I hope you will all support.
