Boccia is a game, similar to backyard Bocce, created especially for the Paralympics in 1984. The object of the game is to score points by propelling your team’s balls closest to the target ball on a long, narrow, indoor playing court. In Boccia, all participants play seated, whether in a wheelchair or not. Balls can be propelled by throwing, kicking, or utilising a ramp — making the game an extremely adaptable sport for players of all ability levels.
How did we do?
We entered 3 teams into the competition and we were competing against 12 other teams from local schools. The children were a true credit to The Green Infant School with impeccable behaviour and great team spirit. We missed out on gold by one point! The children were awarded with Silver and Bronze places. We are all immensely proud of you, well done.
