Boccia is a type of bowling for disabled people. It was originally devised for people with cerebral palsy but now has players with a range of physical and learning disabilities and it is a patypralympic sport.
Norwich Boccia Club was started eight years ago and plays every Thursday evening at the Sewell Park Sports Centre on Constitution Hill and aims to enable players to take part in the sport and then to socialise afterwards.
Boccia helps members to feel they are part of a group and helps improve their confidence, concentration and motor skills and their awareness of the difficulties of other players.
Come and meet the team to find out more.
