Right On Target Open Boccia Competition Hits the Mark Again!

For the fifth year running the Right On Target Boccia Club offered a warm invite to boccia players with physical and learning disabilities to their competition.  Once again the event attracted 70 players from across the length and breadth of Scotland to compete across five categories.

The annual competition is an excellent introduction to competition for new players and provides much needed competition to existing players. Both players and officials can hone their playing and officiating skills and learn from others in a supportive environment. The players come together to compete but also to meet their boccia friends, encourage each other and be part of the growing boccia community.

The standard was high throughout the day with medals being closely contested in all groups. Yvonne Widd, Right On Target Chairperson, said: “We would like to thank clubs, parents, carers, players and volunteer officials for making today a great success. The event continues to grow each year and we look forward to seeing more people come along to compete next year.”

If you or anyone you know lives in Forth Valley or surrounding areas and would like to get involved in boccia please contact the Club Head Coach Jean Duncan by telephoning 07970 153 103 or email jeanmd50@gmail.com.
