National Boccia finals review
The Lord's Taverners Schools' Boccia Finals 2017 was a great success on 3 May at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
The schools finals bring together winners from 11 regional competitions that take place across England from the start of the year, culminating in the national finals.
The Lord's Taverners Schools' programme also trains up hundreds of young officials throughout the season. Boccia England selects ten youngsters who are invited to the finals to be trained as Level 1 Officials. They then have the opportunity to put their skills into practice at the competition, supported by our experienced officials.

The Lord's Taverners Schools' Boccia Finals is another competition that relies heavily on the support of volunteers. A special thanks to all that were at the finals as well as the county and regional organisers that deliver the schools qualifying competitions around the country.
