Kurling & Boccia
Broughton Astley Village Hall. Kurling on Monday & Tuesday mornings, and Wednesday evenings. Boccia Tuesday mornings only.
New Age Kurling is similar to bowls but is traditionally played inside and uses a static target rather than a moving ball. Each team has a set number of stones and take it in turns to slide a stone towards the target, with the winning teams stone closest to the centre of the target.
We have three thriving weekly kurling groups, with lots of comradery and often competitions and social events organised too. There are two daytime groups and one in the evening to suit all circumstances and anyone is welcome.
Boccia is a ball sport, similar to bowls and pétanque, where players throw balls towards a target. In 1984, it became a Paralympic sport and was originally designed to be played by people with cerebral palsy, but now includes players with other disabilities affecting motor skills and is widely enjoyed by able bodied players too.
Our mixed ability group meets regularly on a Tuesday lunchtime, great fun is had by all and we are always happy to welcome new members.
