Boccia England are the National Governing Body (NGB) for Boccia in England. They are responsible for all aspects of the sport in this country, from beginner to expert, providing for all levels of participation.

Boccia England’s five key priorities are:

  • Promote participation in the sport;
  • Empower our athletes to achieve their full potential;
  • Provide a sustainable future for the sport;
  • Support and develop our staff and volunteers;
  • Develop and govern the sport

Working in partnership with CP Sport will support the NGB to achieve these priorities. To do this Boccia England will be supporting CP Sport SportStart programme.

Many of the athletes who take part in Boccia also take part in CP Sport activities with the benefits of taking part in duel sports highlighted in our latest ‘My Story’.

Beth is both a Boccia player and a Racerunner. when asked about how the to sports work together she said

“I feel my Boccia is going from strength to strength. I still do 2 PT sessions a week, Boccia training and hydrotherapy but I have added in RaceRunning and the benefits are clear; I am stronger, fitter and healthier, I get cardio-vascular exercise so my stamina has improved, my core and range of movement means I am both more still on court but I can also reach awkward shots, and then my concentration, focus and mood has improved, so has my attitude on court”.
