Boccia England

Polska Boccia 2016 International Boccia Tournament

In October, Boccia England took a team of eight athletes plus support staff to the Polska Boccia 2016 International Boccia Tournament held in Poznan, Poland.


Boccia England was proudly represented by BC1's Tia Ruel and Jabe Peake, BC2's Aran Guthrie and Reshad Saraj, BC3's Lewis Fisher and Richard Amos and BC4s Joshua Wilkins and Penny Froude. The team was led by Team Manager Matt Kendrick and supported by coaches Felicity Nicholls and Dan Headley who did an outstanding job throughout the trip.

Good performances from all squad players as well as a very positive squad environment contributed to the team having a very successful competition and bringing home four medals.

Congratulations to our medallists Jabe Peake - Silver, Tia Ruel - Bronze, Aran Guthrie - Bronze and Rehad Saraj - Gold.

There were lots of lessons learnt from the competition and the England Talent Pathway continues to go from strength to strength both domestically and internationally.
