Boccia England

Goodbye Richard!


Our Performance and Talent Manager Richard Evans is leaving Boccia England on 9th September to join England Netball.

Richard started working as the Playground to Podium Officer at CP Sport in 2009 and has been a key part of the growth of boccia throughout England over the last 8 years. I know that the support and leadership Richard has provided to colleagues within Boccia England has been invaluable and we will continue to benefit from Richard’s efforts in the years to come.

In his own words,

‘It has been fantastic to have been apart of Boccia England as it grown out of CP Sport, become fully recognised National Governing Body and professionalised into an elite sport. I have enjoyed my time immensely and I am very grateful for the opportunities that Boccia England has afforded me over the years. Leaving Boccia England has been big decision and one that was made slightly easier knowing that I plan to continue refereeing and volunteering for Boccia England. Thank you for all of your support over the years.’

I know that Richard will be missed, without his efforts over the years we wouldn’t be where we are now as a sport. We are grateful that Richard will still remain involved as a referee and volunteer.
Thank you, Richard, for all you have done, we wish you well in your new role.
