The Lowestoft Boccia Club, which has been running now for more than ten years, meets weekly at Water Lane Leisure Centre on a Wednesday between 4:30 and 5:30pm to promote Boccia, which is a Paralympic sport that can be played by all abilities and disabilities.
The club is fully inclusive and aims to be sociable and fun whilst encouraging a competitive approach to the sport and by using specialist equipment all disabilities can be catered for. Boccia (pronounced "botcha") is a disability sport that tests muscle control and accuracy.
Players propel balls to land close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends. Each side has six balls (red or blue) each end to try and score points. Points are accumulated over the course of a match to find a winner.
If you'd like to give it a try the first week is free, then it's £3.00 a session. Contact Ross on 07787150640, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
