Sunday 23 July sees the our latest Inclusive Boccia Tournament, hosted by ActivLives and in partnership with Special Olympics Suffolk, take place at the Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre in Stowmarket. The event is also being supported by Special Olympics GB, Everyone Active, and Active Suffolk.

There will be over 45 keen boccia players competing at the tournament, which makes it the biggest ever organised by ActivLives. Excitement is already rising ahead of the tournament and it promises to be a fantastic afternoon of boccia competition.

Spectators are very welcome to come along to enjoy the day too.

The event will be sanctioned by Special Olympics GB(SOGB), as a Regional Partnership Single Sport Competition. This means that players who are registered with SOGB, and those who are not, are able to participate alongside each other.

There’s lots on the schedule for the day, including both a Singles and Pairs event and will also include a Team ‘Spider decider’ competition. Divisions will be based upon Player Ratings and may include Women’s, Men’s and/or Mixed pairings/players in the same group. The ‘Spider decider’ competition will be based on a mixed ability team format.

All of the matches, and the awards ceremony, will be held in the Sports Hall.
