THE legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games remains prominent in the Larne area with the start of a boccia club at Ballygally Community Hall. Beginning on Tuesday, February 12, anyone keen on getting involved in the sport can come along and simply play!
For those unfamiliar with the sport, boccia is a precision ball sport related to bowls. It is fully-inclusive and anyone can play from young to old. It’s a great opportunity for family and friends to come together to play a new sport. The aim is to throw leather balls (red or blue) as close as possible to a white target ball, or jack. It can be played standing up, or alternatively ramps are available for those who need to be seated.
And to maximise on the opportunity of meeting new people, tea and coffee will be provided at the end of the evening for everyone to enjoy the social side of the club too!
If it sounds like something you would be interested in, come along on Tuesday, February 12 from 7.30pm to 9pm to Ballygally Community Hall.
