Boccia ‘Who can Play?’ Classification Campaign Launch

Thu 1st November 2018

Disability Sport NI officially launched a Boccia Classification & Eligibility Awareness Campaign last Friday afternoon in Girdwood Community Hub, Belfast. The video & poster campaign entitled 'Who can play'? aims to create awareness and inform potential players, coaches, physios, teachers, volunteers and the wider public of the  Paralympic BC1-BC4 classifications for Boccia and the types of disability that may fit each classification.


The campaign was officially launched by Disability Sport NI's Boccia Pathway Performance Officer, Odhran Doherty and Performance Sport Manager Elaine Reid. Invited guests then had an opportunity to watch members of the 2018-19 Northern Ireland Boccia Performance Centre train and find out a little more about their classification and the skills of Boccia.
