Boccia takes place in the main hall and will be supported by 2 staff members. There are 6 people permitted in this game at any time (2 groups of 3; Red Team & Blue Team).
The aim is to get as close to the Jack (White Ball) as possible; much the same as a game of bowls.
Boccia has been a popular choice in the programme for many years and Antonine also had a Boccia team from when they would compete against other team's out-with the centre.
The user group thoroughly enjoy this group as it is a good social activity and enjoy the competitive side to it, user group enjoy the banter between both staff and their fellow peers.
This group also provides good exercise, working upper body strength, co-ordination (eye to hand), and concentration and boosts self esteem.
Staff also encourage user group to participate with score marking and refereeing.
