Paralympic preview: Boccia

Boccia athletes in playing a game

The Paralympic sport of Boccia is a popular one in the South with many talented players coming from our region.

Three of the members of the ParalympicsGB team attended a college in Hampshire where previous medal winners were also alumni. Our reported Penny Silvester has been to meet some players of the game, and ParalympicsGB Boccia coach Barry Bowden, who explains the skills involved.
