Opportunity to try boccia in Bridgend

Bridgend Inclusive Network Group (BING) is working alongside Bridgend County Borough Council (BCBC) well-being team to be able to offer free sessions for you or your group to have a go at the sport of boccia on Tuesday evenings at Brackla sports hall.

Boccia is a Paralympic sport and is similar to bowls. Players try to get their boccia balls closer to the jack ball than the other player or team. Players can roll, throw or kick the ball. Assistive equipment such as ramps and head attachments can also be used if players are unable to propel the ball sufficiently without them. Boccia is suitable for all ages and abilities.

The sessions will be from 5pm to 6pm. A representative will be available to help for your first session and then you will be able to continue additional sessions yourselves with the loan of Boccia sets. Sessions will be starting in February so please get in touch if you or your group would be interested in an initial trial. If you live outside of the Bridgend County area and can get to Bridgend centre we can support with transport. If you live within the Bridgend county, we can arrange to pick you up or meet at a central location.

If you are interested, please contact Anita on 07824 541982 or
