ActivLives boccia players have been busy competing at the ‘Back to Boccia’ Central tournament held recently in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

Eleven players from the ActivBoccia group, who play weekly at Whitton Sports Centre in Ipswich, competed in a variety of classifications in Hatfield.

“We had players competing in the BC2, BC6 and BC8 classifications over the weekend”, said Mike McCarthy, “they all did a fabulous job of adapting to the level of competition which they faced. For all of our BC8 players, (those with an intellectual disability), this was their first formal competition at this level”, said Mike.

The players have been supported each week by Boccia Session Leader, Ally Embley and GB Paralympian, Evie Edwards.

Many thanks also to Mags Fortune, from Wots Up, for her support in making it possible for athletes to compete at this event.
