Paul’s Place Boccia
Boccia is a fully accessible sport, and at Paul’s Place our Boccia teams are run by disabled people, with the support of Paul’s Place staff. We regularly promote the sport locally, taking our love of Boccia into schools and colleges. We currently have six teams; three in the super league and three in the national league.
What are the benefits of playing Boccia?
Boccia is a sport that has many benefits to those who play:
The game itself gives players new skills, along with a better level of concentration. It is a game of great highs and the occasional low, which is quite similar to life!
Boccia is all about teamwork. The more you play the better your relationship gets with your training partner and teammates. Communication is a key skill you’ll develop, as you’re required to clearly communicate with your team.
Boccia gives you increased confidence as the sport continuously pushes you out of your comfort zone.
Boccia is a sport that attracts a diverse range of people, so it can nurture friendships between those who might not otherwise strike up friendships. Boccia is based on trust and communication, two important elements of a healthy friendship.
Boccia is more than just a game. It can be a vehicle for someone to challenge themselves and to try new things, which can lead to a different outlook on general life.
We are supporting people to live life to the full, but we can’t do this alone. We need your support to make this happen and keep sports like Boccia accessible at Paul’s Place.
