Looking for a fun new sport this Summer? Give Boccia a go!
As you may be well aware, the Australian Boccia team did us proud at the Tokyo Paralympics, with MDNSW member, Daniel Michel, winning Australia’s first ever individual medal in the event, taking home a well deserved Bronze medal. Well now it’s your chance to give this fantastic sport a go!
Boccia NSW and Boccia Australia are calling all members of the neuromuscular community to get involved, with Sydney-based clubs in Penrith, the Northern Beaches and Cronulla-Sutherland. Their Mission is to provide people with severe disabilities, who have significant physical impairments, a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the joys of sport, socialise with others, and quite simply have some fun.
You can play both competitively or socially with weekly training sessions and upcoming come try days to be confirmed. The Clubs are looking for players of all ages, who meet the eligibility criteria of Boccia.
Download the Boccia NSW Flyer and check out this helpful Information Sheet about the sport.
Want to give it a go? You might even get to meet Paralympian bronze medalist Dan Michel, who often plays at his local club in the Cronulla-Sutherland Shire!
