Building on the success of the 2016 Paralympics, Farnham Sports Council, in partnership with Waverley Borough Council and backed by Boccia England have established the Farnham Boccia Club.

What is boccia?

Boccia is a disability sport that tests muscle control and accuracy and is now one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Players propel balls to land close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends. Each side has six balls (red or blue) each end to try and score points. Points are accumulated over the course of a match to find a winner.

Sounds simple? It is to get started, but the tactics of the sport offer both tension and excitement as the game plays put.

Get involved

Sessions take place at 6pm every Sunday at the David Lloyd Club, Monkton Lane, Farnham, GU9 9ND.

The club's first sessions took place in September and since then well-attended taster sessions have been held every Sunday at the David Lloyd Club in Farnham.
