Boccia Club meets on a Saturday morning from 10.30am to 1.00pm but the Club does not open on the first Saturday of each month.

Anyone aged from 7+ can come and try it!

A Saturday morning session costs £2.50 for adults and £1 for children and carers who play.

Our BOCCIA Club started in May 2011and welcomes visitors who have played before or would like to learn to play the game.

The existing facilities of our Indoor Bowling Club blend well with the needs of the BOCCIA Club, and there are opportunities to try Indoor Bowling as well.

Comments from our visitors include:

*I will tell other respite carers about the Club.

*Having the Club on a Saturday morning means we don’t have to worry about after-school clubs during the week.

*It’s great!

*The Club is so friendly.

*It’s so local, the nearest Boccia club is in Maidstone.

*There is no other Boccia club in the Medway area and the Saturday morning timing is great!

*I only came because of my son but now I look forward to coming and playing as well.

If members of your club or group are looking for a new challenge; a sport to get involved in; or simply somewhere to play Boccia; then come along on a Saturday morning. You will be sure of a warm welcome.

We had some publicity in the Kent Messenger, Medway edition, see above, which showed some of our Boccia Club members in action.

Beginners are more than welcome to play this Paralympic Sport which is ideal for everyone, including those with restricted mobility and wheelchair users. This seated game is played by up to 6 people in 2 teams using bowls about the size of a tennis ball. Tuition will be given.
