Cotswold Crusaders Boccia Club will be at Robinswood Hill as part of FestivALL 2021 on Thursday 8th July and Tuesday 27th July to demonstrate the inclusive sport of Boccia. There will be a Mobiloo (Changing Places Facility) on site all day on both dates.

Boccia is a precision sport similar to bowls where two players or teams compete to propel red or blue balls close to the white target or “jack” ball. 

 It is very easy to learn the basics of how to play and is a lot of fun!

Boccia is played from a seated position and so is ideal for anyone less mobile but can be played by anyone – with or without any sort of disability or impairment. Assistive devices such as ramps can be used for those unable to throw the balls and the game can be adapted for those with a visual impairment. It is a fun, social activity where you can meet new people and learn new skills. There are competitive pathways open to players with eligible disabilities, and our club supports anyone with an interest in taking the sport further competitively, as well as those who just want a bit of fun!

Cotswold Crusaders We are just coming out of lockdown and will be arranging some free ad-hoc sessions over the summer, and anticipate returning to our regular sessions on Fridays from 5pm to 7pm at Leisure At Cheltenham from September. Email: crusaders.boccia.glos@gmail.com         Tel:07789558963
