Boccia Australia National Titles

Our boccia year reaches its peak with the running of the Boccia Australia National Titles at the Sydney Academy of Sport in Narrabeen from Monday 29th May to Sunday 4th June. As in previous years, BC1, BC2, BC4, BC5 and EMU classifications will compete from Monday to Thursday, and BC3 players will start on Friday and go through to Sunday.

The NSW team have been training hard and have their eyes set on a good swag of medals. We have strong players in all classifications who hope to take the State Shield for 2017.

The Nationals bring us elite players from around Australia and, this year, there’ll be a strong contingent from New Zealand. Competition will be fierce, so let your friends and anyone else who might be interested in watching some exciting boccia know that entry for spectators is free.





NSW Players Take Medals in Dubai

A Regional Open Championship was played in Dubai in April, and Australia was represented by BC3 players Daniel Michel and Spencer Cotie and the BC4 combination of South Australia’s Sarah Mutton and Jean-Paul LaFontaine. In the Pairs, JP and Sarah took the bronze medal while Spencer and Dan won the silver. Spencer then went on to make Australian boccia history by winning the bronze medal in the Individual competition. This makes him the first Australian player ever to win an individual medal in an overseas tournament. Well done Spencer!
