Boccia

Does anyone here play Boccia?
Allow me to explain a bit more about it for those that don't know what I am talking about.
It is  a target based game(think boules and your in the right area), where the object is to get your balls closer to the target ball or "jack" then your opponents. It can be played as singles, pairs or teams, and players are grouped by their disability to try and make it fair. 
It is tactical, tense and every game is different. I play for Blackpool, and while I have been with them for under a year, I have been playing the game for 7 years, up to Regional standard but have aspirations to go much higher.
Thats enough waffle from me for now, if you have any questions Id be happy to answer them
Ian

    @speedshrew Thanks for filling us in.  It does sound similar to boules so would be great to watch!  

    Has your training or games been affected much by coronavirus this year?  I hope not, and that you get to climb the professional player ladder soon!

    Our entire 2020 training and matches have been scrapped. We aren't holding out much hope for next year either. Its been 9 months since I last picked up a ball seriously, although I have been doing bits and pieces at home where I can.

    That's frustrating @speedshrew. Have you been able to keep in touch with your fellow players?
