Primary Boccia

Published on 16 January 2019

Twelve Year 5 children took part in a Primary Boccia event at Derby Arena. 

The twelve children were put into two teams where they faced children from other school teams in 10 minute games of Boccia. 

Boccia is a fun target game similar to Boules and Petang. The white Jack becomes the target for all competitiors to get their Boccia ball closest to. Each competitor makes their shot and at the end of each end the closest team score a point towards their final total. 

Our teams played exceptionally well with one of our teams finishing 2nd overall. 

We had a great afternoon. Well done to both teams!

The game of Boccia is going to be one of our next intra competitions in school.
