Event Success - Forth Valley Disability Sport Seniors Boccia Championships 2019

Thursday 24th January Grangemouth Sports Complex kindly hosted the Forth Valley Disability Sport Regional Seniors Boccia Competition. 30 players attended on the day via day services, local adult support agencies and nominations from the local club Right on Target. All competitors had a great day and really enjoyed the event. FVDS would like to take this opportunity to thank all volunteers and partners who supported the event (to allow for smooth delivery), and to the helpers and carers that came along to support the participants on the day.

Many of the entrants have been training for the event via the local/regional boccia sessions and others by practicing their skills at their centres with their peers. Competitors were able to compete individually and a very high standard of play was demonstrated throughout the event. In some games the winner was not being decided until the final end of the game.

All medal winners were presented with their medals by Graham Harvey, FVDS Branch Coordinator.
