Boccia sessions in Durham
ASPIRING Paralympians are being offered the chance to take up boccia.
Boosted by £5,000 from Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP), the Boccia Durham club is offering new sessions in the sport at the city’s Freeman’s Quay leisure centre.
Co-ordinator Christopher Jackson said: “Boccia is a sport which anyone with a disability can play.
“At Boccia Durham everyone is welcome to come down and have a chat and try.”
The sport is similar to bowls. The sessions have already begun.
