England Talent Pathway Teams & Pairs Competition 2018

The Teams and Pairs Competition saw the England Performance Group (EPG) face off against teams and pairs from the five academies.

At the start of May 35 athletes from across the country descended on West Notts College in Mansfield for the return of the Team and Pairs Competition.

The five boccia academies, Scorpions, Hawks, Gladiators, Knights & Vipers had each selected and entered athletes to compete in the BC1/2 Team, BC3 Pair or BC4 Pair inter-academy competition.
